Everything Must Go
Today’s class 3-Deifying:
Godgrass, godtrees, godroad.
A sheet of geese bisects the rainstorm.
The water tower is ten storms full.
We practice drawing cubes—
That’s the house squared away
& the incubator with Baby.
The dead are in their grid.
O the sleeping bag contains
the body but not the dreaming head.
– Matthea Harvey
