J.J. STARR
Everything swims, a stranger stands before the house. Do not bite the hand that feeds, / we say this of dogs. We slept in a cold clean room pink as rats that homestead the trees or no— / she brushed me rough. She named me / —no dogs / allowed here, but some child tantrums under the elms, two lights crisscross the distance. / All I want to know is when / I will be remade into the holy thing.
