new from above/ground press: The Breakers (Expanded), by Amish Trivedi

The Breakers (Expanded)
Amish Trivedi

Addiction to a Friend of Mine

Ready to shake this game of things-
a furniture rope of burnt offers:
too many eggs blessing.  A

delicate rewind, her fingers
preferred to digest the saturated
soil, a Hare Gunge!

bending higher states in.  Driving
on a filament, this scheme of things.
A care would like a word on a

wing, fiddling like a standing
light more. To this movement,
we are a gutter.
