new from above/ground press: oh the iffy night, by Simon Brown

oh the iffy night
Simon Brown


within the night
another night
and in that night
another night still
will it ever stop
flowers, bombs, fever unbroken
like juice
from any moon
or a lamb made of sticky dust
I dig my way out
I dig so slow
