Franklin Conservatory (April 2013)

I could believe my body accidental
—Kimberly Johnson, “On Divination by Filaments”
like the dust of a strange country
—Joy Harjo, “Songs from the House of Death, Or How to Make It Through to the End of a Relationship”
a dream bloomed
—Ronn Andrew F. Angeles, “Study of Water”
every part of them blithe & smooth & touchable
—Lucie Brock-Broido, “After the Grand Perhaps”
these signs that lead you to my door
—Gwendolyn MacEwen, “Open Secrets”
