From Alix Anne Shaw:

April 17, 2018

there was a voice that led me          “waste yourself
to bone          gouge a barren canyon         in your eye”

among the shattered columns
of white       astonished salt

the quenchless     white horizon
above the starving-ground

I stoop to enter      doorframe
weathered marked with blood

within a kind of corridor
a passageway      a shunt

to lead me toward
a broken       alibi

Parturition
