Parallel Lines
by william hurst
Sign language, the billboard
of earth gods: skulls on a
shaman stick. Water and oil
in a decanter, room temper-
ature, releasing fumes
until it can be gulped
down. Beaks through egg-
shell white huts, pulling
the outside in and folding
it, a metal chair.
This is the ditch without
a bridge or bottom.
