pp. 27-33 | 10.1353/mis.2013.0075

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

I tried to leave behind
everything that could make me
burn, to evade the urges
of change, by shutting myself up

in the country. I live apart,
I stay in and spend evenings
on quiet pursuits, studying
history. What I’ve learned

is that the old house I chose
for its worn, creaking wood
was built after a woman
torched her first home,

that desperate for something
new. It’s to the house of her
wanting, her flame azaleas
all around, growing in closer,

that I have come to simplify
my desires. I wade in the creek,
collecting from the water, pieces
of china, edges charred.
