*/the new sobriety/*

Liver, recover.

Years pass and are salutary.

A thin scum coats

the ornamental pond

quickening spawn

out of nothing, working

a languid expanse. Life

is raw and indifferent

to refinement, as

happy using Leda

as the swan. Before

the whole system descends

into Lent, hush, bitter

organ, and wear your

brief colors—dim orange,

dull pinks, bruise blues.

*Rodney Koeneke*



My pronouns are shipyard, jellyfish & ten

I sorely miss the city

The angels miss me more


Locked in a bevy of worrisome corners
I turn the river over to rub its belly

Uncertain how long it will take


Mãng cầu, yêu cầu
Our fruits often share the same desire
Wishy heights of romance

*Stacey Tran*
