Issue 9: Horizontal vs. Vertical
A Publication of the USF MFA in Writing Program



 

          i.

 

Douse the burden on your
muddled flanks

It shatters in a bath of
robot sparks, you stutter
out the measure of fuse-blown
transmissions to hack your
way through a field of ghosts-
then write a letter about it:

“Dear Recipient,

fields are a wick burning

fields become the graph
in dives

fields are rising pistol smoke

fields teeth their grain
against the sky

P.S.  fields to carpet the dead
beneath the earth.”
