{editors, arrows, Katherine Osborne}

i.

asking is the only praise I worship. every squeal comes from the same tire. this means outside. is there anything

the no longer
kidnapped

miss? traffic.

ii.

really what we wanted to say is that one of us was rereading a book of poems and there was nothing in the book about the chicken or the egg or the woman or the ship and it made the rest of us want to name something after the man on all fours who gave god an idea.

iii.

“When they see me get up
to walk toward you
It’s as if their little sister
left a group of campers
to gather sticks
in a night that considers
us over and over”

Katherine Osborne, from the collection Fire Sign

iv.

horse, deer. anything that, alongside, evokes. I went underground and had nowhere to go but up after kissing a missile silo. the apocalypse is a joke. I told it once.

v.

for, after, or before Katherine Osborne

[domain]

falsehoods
I was sure
to say
to a horse, things like
god is sending
his middle
child
to collect
a drop
of my daughter’s
blood, or

it’s a sin
to be
1989, things I felt

I owed
the horse, that were
horse-like
in their stillness, that went
nowhere
when nowhere
was

come fly
or flat
earth

the dark’s
bitch
