Voice Box in the Sur­gi­cal Field

The Iowa Review - - NEWS - El­iz­a­beth met­zger

An au­to­matic train car re­turns

around ex­is­tence with the black­blow cargo of no ap­par­ent why.

At home a rat col­lapses be­neath a door.

I knock, cir­cled by the chance you will ex­pire.

Body that ap­pears only by your body’s dis­ap­pear­ance—

soon your rib must ro­tate, like a turn­stile, to let me in.
