ISSUE:  Winter 2018


a line between the wild and settled regions /
the colored band around heraldic shields
the seam / rim / edge / periphery / the margin brink or limit /
a frontier //
a bed replete with herbage or flowers
to put a border on or lie upon it / to abut //

my brother lay upon it once
he made himself a crucifix
he laid himself along it / upped and laid himself across //
he touched / pressed / rolled and tried himself against it /
the one snow falling hard on either side /
his open mouth was quickly filled / his purple lips encircled it
he whispered both inaudibly
and hummed the double-wonder
