About the Feature

Fruit ripens in
the argent bowl.
The pear’s slow
blush comes
as the burnished
salmon spoils,
woolly eyes forget-
ful. The rabbit’s
soul swells,
fur amplified
in the convex
silver dish. On this
wooden table all
the quiet volition
of the world underway—
becoming, then
becoming anew.
