Fall/Winter 2015-2016

Deborah Hauser


So over you, over easy, over and under, ovar-ies, my rosary failed, or what,
or else ostensibly used to date ostentatious, orgigami: the art of the fold,
the big O, the little o, the poetic O, zer0, only joking, onions  spilt milk,
own up, animal husbandry is my field of study, zoos and suburbs, in this
showcase: female domesticus, sows no oats, sews sorrow into hand-
embroidered handkerchiefs and other crewl work – kids in school double
oos, snake eyes, what’s a mom to do, but wOw, o say, can you prescribe
mood stabilizers, I see I have an appointment with the vacuum cleaner,

hoover that zygote right out of here.
