From Issue 15: September

 
David Sam
So green goes
pregnant underground
or flies with wind—
divine botanical passion
We darken this
with restlessness
for other equinoxes
How to vanish
turning away from such
an unreliable map
Where in the end
my likeness
will walk without me
while the world has changed
