Certain Things You Should Know About Rusty

Mille grazie to the editors of The Maynard (Vol. 9 No. 2), where my poem “Certain Things You Should Know About Rusty” now appears  — in both text and audio formats!

withering in his chest like a neglected houseplant,
last summer’s geraniums in an upstairs window,
just enough December light for a few spindly leaves, a bloom.
That’s Rusty for you. Can’t kill him—he flowers”
