climbing out of the agreeable it
by Glenn Ingersoll

  1. We will know in July, a good month for knowing in July.
  2. He turns over and twitches.
  3. We are all trying to read minds. It’s easiest when they’re written out.
  4. A hair gets in the way.
  1. She traded this destination for another every time she came home.
  2. It was no more the bicycle that was the issue than the lights.
  3. One who offices.
  4. That upon which one reclines.
  1. New steps on old steps like old steps.
  2. The paint of the last name scratched from the glass.
  3. The door stood open but the passage was blocked by dogs.
  4. You might be more comfortable facing away.
