On going on

Hannah cohen


The distance with its koi

silhouettes. New salt on fingertips.

         This end without


its rungs. Piles of ice, teeth.

         Warp, weft in bed-ragged sleep.

All what-ifs and their autumn


         bruises. Some holes are bitter

still. How my first bite of fruit

tastes the best.
