1 poem by Anna Chotlos



I had indeed been trying to figure out, in a sort of a teary panic,

what about you might change on T, and what would not. -Maggie Nelson, The Argonauts


a cicada begins

underground sloughing one


likeness for a brighter

form secretly woven in the depths


of the earth pale green second body

rending seams always intended to burst


as wings unfold brittle

maps facing uncharted territory


fearfully and wonderfully

made this new cartography


of body -


lost for the right gesture,

I change your name

in my phone
