Why You Tried to Drown

Foreword Reviews - - Spotlight Religion Books—poetry -

Lit­tle soul, pulled down like a drum. Hook-line. Sinker. You swore there was gold at the bot­tom of the lake, swore the lake wanted you to wear its mossy skirt. Yes, you looked gor­geous, moths pitched white as bar­rettes in your hair. Lit­tle air, lit­tle sed­i­ment-coated tongue. Holy Noth­ing is a trick­ster: oh to be young, yes young, and lop­sided in faith.
