Today's poem is by Michelle Gil-Montero


Once again begins
With once

Then crunches underfoot
The always

Unseasonable yellow

And restlessness
And once again

Like charts accruing moons
At different degrees
Of satiation

It is a time of many

Quick-edged as cut-outs

Once my window is a book
Of esoteric recipes
For sleep
