Issue 9: Horizontal vs. Vertical

            v.

Sift to the center of fields
and begin to dig.
You are searching for God.

If you mixed grey cement
to pour the foundation on a
single blade of grass, I would not
crawl on my hands to reach

had slept there, I would
not say that heat curled fallen
leaves like a cat in your
window.

I had a dream and fields
are on fire.
