A poem by Michael Slosek from the issue:
From Kafka to Kleist
To a body, unaccomplished in sleep
a wreath is held
"To the best of their house"
brought back to the slaughter's art:
"This city, owned by a glove
of chosen hands, larger each pull apart.
1911 - a spider crawls over your eyes.
I waif in the strength to die."
So sparing us -
the cold breathing.
The weight climbing around a denser world
as obstacles to an inner orbit.
An amulet with arms around itself.
