Little Box of Cotton & Lightning by Marni Ludwig

$8.00

Time and again in Little Box of Cotton and Lightning, lattice letters are handed from one group of neighbors to another, strangers and experts (often against medical advice). Thimbles and hems nod and sing.

—Susan Howe

After the Girl

After the girl
with the handful of mice
and a tiny silver guillotine leaves,
we lie down in the dark.

You tell me last night
you dreamed you wore
a beard. The night before
you drowned but did not sleep.

On the screen behind us
citizens of a great island
build the streets
toward a difficult sky.

On the next screen
a blind girl steps
before a shining faucet
and lets her dress fall.
