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

20 The Persimmon Tree Spots of dark bloom ooze into melons. The persimmon tree has grown into a frame. Still the mother, still the child among the branches. A gourd lies beside the spring to satisfy thirst or purify the body, as if there were a difference. Splatters shaken from a brush break out along the stems of roses, soft fists of buds safe inside the embroidery. As the moon swells, the woman’s hands ripen in the folds of her gown. Under the tree, wells of shadows swallow the persimmons as they fall, bleeding the heart’s juice into the shade. Young_FinalTextRev.indb 20 7/22/19 1:00 PM ...
