Thursday: Serrates

Julie Crea & Patsy Alford

saw, breadknife, elderberry leaf,
bluejay call dear john, sleep deprivation?
slippery tongue sierra,
dentalium stubble
flatiron thistle and first frost
the shake of a tail, a warning.
hush now, keep your voice down,
don't show off.
man and wife
grasshopper kazoo
katydid lace and tears,
a forgotten hug, florescent light and

the air,


before it
