Our Heroine Comes of Age

From: Colorado Review
Volume 41, Number 1, Spring 2014
p. 112 | 10.1353/col.2014.0005

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The evolution of love has followed the trajectory of six
    unknown constellations
& three sea snails & a bowl of butternut squash soup.

Butternut squash soup is sometimes eaten alone & sometimes
    with lovers.

A city in the South lights up at night like it can’t stop breathing.
Inside that city the idea of home is simple. It can be worn like
    a man or a nosebleed.

A woman listens to a flower wilt.
She inhabits the space of that sound.

There are so many ways to sleep,
it almost makes a person infinite.
