new from above/ground press: A Little Slash at the Meadow, by Joshua Marie Wilkinson

A Little Slash at the Meadow
Joshua Marie Wilkinson

Get the tape cued so I can

betray somebody in here.

What surfaces

won’t let off its oceanic stink.

What you’re trading, just functional luggage.

I mean, I wanted to get

lugged out of a well.

Skoal tin of soil, now rain & soil.

You like to breathe, right?

A good scolding, a hotel room

with one too many freaks to stand it.
