Mudlark No. 46 (2012)



From what catalog did we order
the housefly’s designer clothes?

What if at the end of the butterfly’s wing
there is an anti-butterfly?

Who developed the grief chemical
that poisoned our ozone?

If there is a God, does It wear


When will the skulls in their bone uniforms
hand us our walking papers?

How many bandages will it take
before the bleeding stops?

Is it true, what they say—
that there is really only one bandage?


What if the rose is the temple and the bee
is the prophet?
