Watching the Fire Take Your Body

From: The Missouri Review
Volume 37, Number 1, 2014
p. 36 | 10.1353/mis.2014.0018

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

Remember those blue irises I’d left for years?

You dug them out with Sean’s big fork,
then left them on the grass for me to split.

After you’d gone I wrenched and tore.
Got nowhere, gave up struggling, fetched the spade.

That mat of yellow roots, the slicing blade,
the last despairing heave, the rain of soil—

the shock still live and scorching through my flesh.
