The Book of Longing and ForgivenessI.
the grief of elephants
and the shards of slowness
The last breathing tombs
in this earth are eternal

and the fact that I could not be the mother you needed

It was an ugly terrier with bulging eyes and missing teeth, a bloated belly and thick scars around its eyes. Nehemiah suspected it was blind, and he knew it had worms. The Dog puked on the carpet, and they were writhing in its bile. Nehemiah gathered paper towels and bleach from the kitchen while Micah pet The Dog. "We can't keep it," he told Micah, countin
