Poetry student Lizi Gilad Silver has three new poems in the current issue of Thrush. Here’s a snippet from her poem “During Our Marriage, We Neglected to Care for Our Livestock”:
For ten years our feeble camel twitched
her ropetail and winked in every room
of our house. We knew neighbors heard
her odd, two-toed footsteps and caught
glimpses of her tawny hair. Sometimes
she appeared in public: mall, picnic.
