The Art of Fugue Part VI by Jan Zwicky
"The patterns of your life / repeat themselves until you listen. / Forgive this."
What it costs by Marge Piercy
"While / the heart kicks / like a strangled rabbit / and the lungs buckle / like poor balloons: / I will survive."
Demand It Courageously by Julia Hartwig
"Make some room for yourself, human animal. / Even a dog jostles about on his master’s lap to / improve his position."
