Plain China

I've Read that it's an Organ in the Walls of a Sternum Church and then I Met You

by Danielle Quichocho · Ohio Northern University
"Untitled (athlete)", Katie Burleson · Wheaton College

I’ve talked to the freckle

pressed into the pinky and sometimes

the dimple on her ankle sings to me. I’ve watched

as her lion hair scatters itself across

her head as if it were an absurd halo given to her by some blizzard

God.

 

Anthology eyes

name every laugh and scream

in cracked and cavernous books,

an iris library
