blew off, a pale crown and its ragged red brim, the girl

raising one finger to point, surprised, and that

too, flew all of them now farflung, a farfetched

patchwork strewn, all their clothes and concerns

to the wind god”

imitation of the treasure that is love

false body and false verb

A crisis is not the time for ever-after.”
