Fall/Winter 2013

Aimee Herman


what are we trying to break into         admit frame of streaked glass is disguised enough by curtains to confuse the watchers from watching      what is this some kind of crayon from the previous tenant                     and that rip of inverted tree in ground grows upside down with flailing branches stuck in the breeze of eastern territory           no one can disprove the sky is constructed of khadi    homespun cirrus          who lives here can only be defined as metallic flyers drown          ing bark           studded patterns of weather stain        instruct everything else how to be how to be how to be how to be how to be
