Issue 7 - Crystal Stuvland

On Resurrection Sunday

I unearth a book about
urban foraging, every word
a prompt for lovers.

I nibble the yellowed
corners, the book’s moldy
thighs, and I think,
through the hot flashes of summer,
of the way your hands will look
next year: darkening, curled,
flowers in black dirt.

Maybe if we stay here long enough
we’ll forget the powdery forms
of our overcrowded loneliness and
finally bloom.

--Crystal Stuvland
