A l l a n  P e t e r s o n




I was surprised to find love like a condition

among the medical prefixes

even though Newport was erythro- with sunset

and you were a livid silhouette

It is a commonplace that context creates itself

out of whatever happens to be there

limestone covered with water a falls

weeds in a meadow your dress

in a pattern that adoringly copied Nebraska​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
