A line from Patricia Lockwood : “the town is a blot/ on the town”

and one from Ange Mlinko “iron turns a torrent red”

Alicia Ostriker : Soften & Melt : and some lines:

lifetime after lifetime
we surged up the hill
I and my dear brothers
thirsty for blood
our beautiful songs
said the dog


I know what you mean said the tulip
about epiphanies
