Three Poems by Amy Ouzoonian


Ice falls and collects in gentle pockets
of the women who sell cut Mangos in plastic
homes insulated with hot sauce or lime juice.
Everything should live somewhere, the man
thought as his hand moved from hers
into his pocket then up to the sky
catching April's shower.
