Fall 2010


Mucking

muck it out
good girl
I’ll show you
princeton
 
outgrown
poppy
crippled himself
in a habit
 
went back to Texas bare
cousined
bucked
 
hands on the coat
the coat brush
sweating
whiter
 
I swear it
rubbed them down
here
stalls
 
lies an ox
his bit
I mean
him bitted
 
no sense to it
I spied her first
becoming
OK-ed
 
garaging
the salt licks
the proof
of a stomach
 
delinquint
savvy
pigtails
beefed
 
dead ringer
for haystacks
that hand
filled her up with
 
weepy
squeezing
mousey
belief
 
ran so
some three miles
those oxfords
were caked
 
so blatant
at gaping
the mileage
she made
 
an entry
utterly
wastebasket
 
the waters grew
the line
dependable
utterly
 
muck it out
good girl
I’ll show you
princeton
 
outgrown
sloppy
crippled herself
out of habit
 
went back to farmlands bare
reddened
bucked
 
hands on his coat
the coat dust
sweating
whiter
 
I swear it
wide swaths
laps
kind
 
a blaze
and a whimper
the cut from her
hide
