new from above/ground press: Cupcake Royale, by Sarah Mangold

Cupcake Royale
by Sarah Mangold

Reactions, Vials

isolate your social activities

chocolate with mint icing

retroactively today eyebrows

another eight weeks

she got out all right

meanwhile he might

anyone can do it now

the whole system is fine and good

color coded medications

so your vial is green

or red or white and

you know out the corner of your eye

it’s not physical

combating infection

on day four the second pill

families leave with vases of Iris

pink boxes of cupcakes
