From An Accounting
“When the meal ended, you presented a brief statement on geography
and the value of proximity.
Inside the florescent ringing of the empty Chinese restaurant,
I recited the names of birds that gather beneath the feeder beside my house.
An unexpected sadness rooted itself under my skin
tenacious as the quills of a porcupine.”
Poet Shaindel Beers
Issue Five of Queen of Cups goes out to subscribers tomorrow. Here’s a little taste of the goodness to come!
“The male poet says, Remember
the sexy poems you used to write? You’re not
writing mommy poems now, are you? I want
to tell him even my mommy poems are too sexy
for him, especially too sexy. I know because
the tongues that have flickered over my C-section
incision have told me.”
from I am Not a Narrative for Your Entertainment by Shaindel Beers
