  You could have a big dipper   

A poem by Oakley Ayden

Backwoods Carolina cravings while standing in California a few blocks from the ocean you left Virginia for

 

i’m in your town. i breathe



your beach. i’ll make you


osso buco, sweets. just


bring me butchered


whitetail shank


and promise to


be primal.
