After the Fire at Club Lobohombo, Mexico City

I post letters to my lost Mayan sisters
waiting to be shaken open by some
precarious thriver in the song-stung dark.
Over the ear, a conch of voice and music
was a sack full of torn wings beating.

  2. Hi Sarah. Found you via the Rumpus, where you let fly with an extended lament in the comments on the latest kerfuffle over the value of the MFA. Enjoyed your rant very much.
