AMY GONG LIU

the cup
the poem
the gilded rust
the poles
the weaver
the gab
the political
the wind the recycled
the recycling
there is black
and the population
is dressed in its
monochrome
breath the hot
rasp the pressure
the coolants
the relief
the string the
joy the
edible

and the night
holds the
pocket holds
the wistfuls
and their lines
of stolen
diamonds in
their sky
