& all the 32,293*, by reuben woolley

we drown in their sick
sympathy

easy.tell them
the waves are not as cold & here

at least our bones
can stretch a goodly
fathom

where green skies
fill with fins there is
no church to disturb

the waves
we’ll raise a pretty storm
on all their mooring

sleep now / let our
deaths strengthen

deep
we’ll keep our names
