Poetry: Sarah Mangold


Bright Fruit

My inflection but it’s her sewing machine

the original address contained

walk from it

a trick is the book

the essence of the trip

impersonating Arkansas

They could summon only you

moving furniture against the walls

he refrained from assigning previous sentences

around small books

smaller dogs

the difficulties lie
