The Boiler

Kimberly Lambright

IN THE FIELD OF LEMON AFTERGLOW

Your worry canoe slows to anatomy,
a floral lime paper against
the breakfast table. I’m here
to tell you even honor fades
in the outback, the glim-glum, 
and that you will make it. All the myth,
the decoration, the raft of your pearl,
it will bog as you remain
in the heavy sky and the bronze ring.
Your tonality lit with incubation.
I hallucinate your rib-temper, I unfurl
the ark of your blueberry forest fever dream.


I MADE UP MY MIND

In the Alaska aftermath the eyelid mountain
crests, bests

toward the ultra-cabin. I cure
the supermarket and
there is always a girl being injured perfectly,

her eyes are wolf eyes,
they will pin you down,
make you over.
