*[#Unoccupied]*

After everyone stops
smoking the Ovid
it gets ugly to be alive.

The dead refuse us
and instead someone I know turns over
a police car and nothing

happens anymore not even
my face so empty and
too full of other people's

meanings.

I was bored and you
were bored, remember?

We dreamed of
leaving our heads
without a single
noun in them.

*Magdalena Zurawski*


*UNTITLED ANIMAL #8*

I'm in no danger

flowers resemble
years of wandering
aiming elsewhere

a puzzle of a map

try to help

scatter laughter

pick out paint

exaggerated care

a nest
an open wound

*Stacey Tran*
