Rent from DeepDyve Rent from DeepDyve


From: Prairie Schooner
Volume 87, Number 4, Winter 2013
p. 34 | 10.1353/psg.2013.0161

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

One sighs heavily down the telephone
Another pours the assassin’s quicksand

One leaves the garrison lonely as a bullet
Another fills white tubs with kerosene

One is surveyed from the border glass
Another guards against the darkness of trees

One clinks to the enemy’s thimble
Another fantasizes death in a flyway

One slugs the sitter at his pianoforte
Another takes shade under a fig tree

One discerns bloodiness from the siren
Another brandishes the manacles

One juggles dust between his hands
Another combusts the basecamp
