Excerpts:

Cadaverous Clara
Did you see her hair? The cylindric azalea gave immediate feeling
while dusky mortem exemplified the pansy of Midwestern elegiac.
These moments are preceded, one every month for a year,
each petal a talkative backstop to one’s insurmountable
descendants. Plankton are optic, a stubborn sawbelly, a tentative
test of the blood. In other words, pictures will destroy.
