Excerpt

Patrick Friesen
from “storm windows”

wrenching open the shed door squeal and must squashed plums underfoot and looking for storms
cans of dry paint a hammer and handsaw hanging from nails an old blue bicycle with flat tires
your children in the corner startle you a bird dead at their feet they're digging a grave with a trowel
