Justin Petropolous (poems) & Carla Gannis (art)























































did you know this

copy deflects

from the original

but we were source material

before we ran away

a reversion to a two party

system like veering onto a film

set where feathers



ball the tips of branches

hidden from parts of time

close to or far

from a humming bird

lisps at the light            you

measure a climate

economy mosaic

of reconstructed




patterned in candlesticks

which circuit your

palms your extremities still

bound to description

agave-leaf thorns

painted bone        did you

know they used rubber



bullets on the crowd that

denotation notches star shaped

in the pavement

we walk our belief in the

predicate case

any given given

voice swallowed back
