Poem of the Day
  • Poem of the Day: Linens
    There are charms
    that forestall harm.
    The house bristles
    with opportunities
    for stasis: refolding
    the linens along
    their creases, keeping
    the spoons and chairs
    in their right places.
    Nobody needs to
    witness one’s exquisite
    care with the napkins
    for the napkins
    to have been the act
    that made the fact
