new from above/ground press: Cloud Game with Plums, by Rose Maloukis

Cloud Game with Plums
Rose Maloukis

Oh! Those shrubs!
That one! lays
itself on top of itself
variegated swell over
dark serried quick
mound upon mound
fan fingered leaves
reach to the earth
its body so godly—
if it could stand
and walk away
I would follow
