Throwing Stones

by Brandon Krieg Issue: Spring 2019


Trucks salt the roads

Senators salt air

Where does salt go?

I asked a dry creek

It didn’t know

It answered dead flies

It answered dry wings

Dry thousand-facet eyes

What’s the meaning of this?

I asked, throwing stones

It echoed out Watchmaker!

Intricate! Intricate!

For all your not seeing

The better to not see you with
