Postmark from the Transition

By Rachel M. Simon
  1. the name altered from parent's choosing
  2. the threshold of a home
  3. white gloves on the windowsill
  4. costumes of our drama
  5. soup stock of animal and stone
  6. thigh, syringe
  7. non-ninety degree staircase
  8. redistribution of fats
  9. your mother's voice in the next room
  10. orphaned pair of pants
  11. disappearing ink dots
  12. recollections of family hot fudge
  13. rigid posture attempts
  14. dude descending a staircase
  15. handclasp, handshake, embrace
