Jesus said, Do not worry about your life,
what you will eat or drink. Or about your body,
what you will wear. So you cleared
your cupboards. Lay naked on the shelf
where I found you. I mistook you
for a loaf I had prayed for. You let me
take you in my mouth and I binged
on your flesh. Both of us—unaware—
we should have prayed for love
instead of crumbs. —Still now, small
morsels of you on my tongue.

These guardian monsters, your adversaries, fill in the emotional frame established by your travels through the Forbidden Land.

Darcie Dennigan is a player. I don’t mean only that she’s a member of team poetry. I mean that she’s one of the sharps, one to keep your eye on at all times, the one to whom you pass the ball when team poetry needs to score. Her fancy is as consistent as her footwork.
