Lantern Review: A Journal of Asian American Poetry

Leaving Cortona

The hills are cobbled together with ruins
the doors call to each other from their broken nails

Forty churches in such a small span
the townsfolk are buried on the side of the hill

The gates climb over each other for a better distance
some wither, some break apart, some hold
