Sally Tries At RuinKristin Kelly
She heard it from an island— Betty, many are gone. The wrecked sand, the sound they made. Elephants tackling glass. Nothing to do but make a plan. List 1: lives to do. List 2: things to live. We made a parade for the dead, we became a garden. List 3: start at the end. Shock is suffered most by children. We need bulldozers. List 4: love everything close, use your inside voice. It’s as if nothing. It’s less than that— I watched a monkey jump over a man to wrestle a dog. List 5 has a truck but nothing stops anything— from inside a house, inside a room excessive with light and controllable water.
