    We Knew Nothing   We knew something was wrong with him. The tetras, fresh from the pet store, flop and wheeze in his little green net. Eager to flush them, he asks permission, his eyes: the vacuum of space in which twin galaxies unrelentingly churn.         First Memory   The […]

          M.K. Brake is a spell-maker and poetic anarchist. She glorifies the sovereignty of white space and the architecture of the word on the page, and will never forsake projective verse, although she knows it’s a bitch to enter into WordPress. The more she learns and grows, the less readable her […]

Fish and frogs swam in the air beside me, darting through stems and thorns. I’d examine […]

    THE SIREN WORLD   I hear translated calls. Terms for birds snatch moths, rivers smother mountains, skies fused into mouths like alloys.   My mind’s resistance to pluck new words from the air is naïve, but I fight how my tongue twists in awkward positions until they naturalize to speak.   The world […]

Sang

  Sang   We tell the children to play and be children   because we cannot. They find swords and flags   and start a war that lasts all winter;   their voices mushroom from the trenches.   The flags’ movements are awkward, left and right,   but honest, human, and very faint.   Words […]
