The Easement

Poetry Joshua Marie Wilkinson

One moth flies above many hands
& I don’t want the words for desire
to fuse to a life of what presents a weed
now here, now alone, scored
with a yarn for longing, one lifting
her skirt up slowly, slower where
the world’s tilted, blustery, incapable
& how to refuse us each to a one.

“Each new issue feels like a public report from many individual private spheres.” —Antoine Wilson
