Poem Reprinted as Supply Chain Cools

Screen Shot 2018-12-28 at 6.12.47 PM

The belts that shot boxes full of commodities into our gravitational fields have cooled down and hopefully the workers by those belts are getting a break and you are throwing away some boxes. On December 23rd, Poetry Daily reprinted my poem “Amnesia, 2007 / Nightshift, Mandatory Overtime II.” This one is from Someone’s Utopia. It’s speckled with my time at the end of a ramp that puked boxes in a Toys R’ Us shipping plant. Workers can paralyze the supply chain! Also, just started Brandon Shimoda’s The Dessert on Allison’s recommendation. Wonderful so far. And still moved by and processing his essay on curses and U.S. internment camps in The AALR Book of Curses.
