Anya & Ivan This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I. Anya
Twip-twap, pit-pat
Goes the
Stone beneath my
Three-toed feet.
This is
The city of endless cathedrals
And I’ve tapped
Across the
Steeples and turrets and stone
Structures of
Each one.
I’ve seen the stained glass
Each one
And I won’t ever fly
Beyond the winding cityscape.


II. Ivan
Scutter, hiss, purr.
Too many
Mice to catch
In the country.
Lurking in the lilacs
And the tall grass
And the blue
Wood cabinets
That squeak.
Dark trees
Watch me.
