Steak and Popsicles. Unicorn salt, the green Denver of dreams. / a pod of pelicans clucking like chicken cousins / The sea here is warm gravy.

There’s always Kansas. Detention of the voice. Your silk barnyard was worse. Other socks, but Portland. “Let me call you backwards. I’m watching the game,” I said.
