  You could have a big dipper   

A big piece of paper by Kyla Houbolt


don't try too hard

to solve the problem of angels

with the dirt's light, the way plain

gravel is high mineral art

in spite of being underfoot.

listen, the sky is

always singing its


back to you.

I mean, maybe

the stars are broken.

how would we know?

love, too, takes notes

building a case

for its freedom
