new from above/ground press:

sink in, your oath in the boathouse

to attend, float
a Kootenay-protection

blue sticker glint
connote blue o sh

unenergy is in set
of shoulders

loss is: the sighs up
and down the situ

float where you loathe
in a personal verboten

be the ignored goatherd
wolf spines are every bough

fine. at the promontory of speech
the shifty-footed lengthening line

the cash

do a task
to a table, pardon –

mean the counter
gruel-cruel the inkless pen

hotel mortifica
shun panic

oath in the boathouse
by Pearl Pirie (Ottawa)
