softenings

I know now how one looks after losing a baby

says the maker
of frog. how to get

mouthwash
to an angel

no…

can we imagine
this, can we imagine

for the scarecrow at the chalkboard

(fossils (I ask

because we are naked
not nearly
enough

I ask because so often
it comes
before child

this word
beaten, to put

our shadows
to bed
