Lindsay Miles Literature Poetry


Lindsay Miles


One hundred percent recycled
material. Conversations
about purity. My god

you are beautiful. A copy
of a copy of a copy of a. Family
receives a shipment of fruit

and other things that have to
happen now. Today is suitably
warm. In the beginning

there were multiple trees.
It’s not just the gun
lobby pumping their young

like bike tires. I’ve been thinking
about loyalty. I’ve been thinking
about adults who routinely drink

entire glasses of milk. A child
of a child of a child becomes
super valuable. Filling spots.
