community garden winter

Zach Savich

this is how you keep talking to someone who’s crying and cry       there was 

that dog     that only children see      it’s a corgi      places fire feeds on rain 

colorless rainbows 

just ask them to stand on the stage       during the hard speech        and look 

at the harp      this way of swimming works only in currents        you look 

for a fact and find a phrase 

walk under the dry bouquet       a kite must be one of several shapes to fly
