    Wide Tree, by Chris Tonelli

    Wide Tree, by Chris Tonelli, is out. Copies will be available at AWP.

    from Wide Tree

    for George Mazzoni

    There is a place
    I can’t get to
    because he is dead.
    I want to live at
    the ocean because
    he did. I will go to
    his town even, his
    house. But what
    will I go there to
    receive? The junipers
    unpruned? We think
    of trees as places
    and as defining
    places. I had never
    thought of him as
    defining a place.
    Maybe people should
    have been trees.

    Morning News, by Ana Bozicevic-Bowling

    Just out: Ana Bozicevic-Bowling's Morning News. Copies will be available at AWP.

    from Morning News

    Thoughts on Things

    In the hallway that precedes sleep
    I’m visited
    by the things of childhood:

    the hallowed bread-box

    a crisp white
    edge of balcony

    brown pears on white tiles.

    Why does the mute
    queue of things come?

    No bread in the box, no view
    from the ledge. But the roundness
    of painted pears
    says over and over
    a round brown word,

    the earnest key
    in the eyes of dogs…

    If I didn’t know about wind
    trees would seem raging.
    I don’t know what speaks
    from things. Their sentences

    come not as something
    outside of me
    but as one of me

    only we speak
    in opposite directions:
    they speak from the end
    into the beginning

    from unbirth into life.

    Fingergun, by Matt Rasmussen

    Matt Rasmussen's Fingergun is out and available. For those of you going to AWP, I will have copies.

    from Fingergun

    Dream after Suicide

    My brother stood
    in the refrigerator light
    drinking milk that poured
    out of his head

    through thick black curls,
    down his back into a puddle
    growing larger around him.
    My body stood between

    the living room and kitchen,
    on the metal strip dividing
    the carpet and linoleum.
    He couldn’t hear his name

    clouding from my mouth,
    settling in the fluorescent air.
    I wanted to put my finger
    into the hole,

    feel the smooth channel
    he escaped through,
    stop the milk
    so he could taste it,

    but my body held
    as if driven into place.
    The milk on the floor
    reflected the light,

    then became it.
    Floated upward and outward
    filling every shadow,
    blowing the dark open.
