The Iowa Review - - FRONT PAGE - Mon­treux rotholtz

I am full of doubt. The hawk sit­ting in the mid­dle of a frozen field, a red lump in white flat.

In a mi­cro­fiche ma­chine wrapped in wood pan­el­ing, the archive flips by.

The click of it bounces off the white cracked tile, the but­tered leather of the chair.

In the archive an avalanche is per­ma­nently slid­ing, an­gled, into a ski lodge.

In the archive stiff and white snakes float. I cup my hands to­gether. Pines dis­tend the vec­tored sheet.
