How long would it take you to make my voice well up?

8 Aug

Brett Elizabeth Jenkins has 5 incredible poems over at fwriction : review right now. They hurt and swell and tender in all the right ways. It’s interesting new work by Brett, really, as I’m more used to her quippy funny work. It’s awesome to see her range from quirky/funny to punchy/pathos.

July

Even the crickets have become weary.
Heat lightning opening the dark corners
of the room. The fields thunder idly outside.
This feeling I’m having without you leaves me
with nothing. What this heat would feel like
with you in it, unstitching yourself
inside me. How long would it take you
to make my voice well up?
