new from above/ground press: west coast shorts, by Laura Kelsey

west coast shorts
Laura Kelsey

the home, demolished

jagged pile of planks
plywood and metal
a tiny woman stoops
with bonnet already
rifling through, yanking
at wires like a bird
pulling worms 

published in Ottawa by above/ground press

cover art/design: Michael Harding
