The strawberry is a large enough temple.
I clothe myself in doll-mirrors while the vehicles move
raindrops never touch each other.
A door floating towards shore
is where we’ll draw these maps.
My wife’s belly is resembling something
of us. Child like a strawberry
swallowed & my mouth is a candle.
When is the yard not spraypainted
anemones? You can tell by teasing them
open with your finger. My wife’s belly
is a clenched fist. If they are sleeping
you may never discover where you live.
While we have you...
...we need your help. Confronting the many challenges of COVID-19—from the medical to the economic, the social to the political—demands all the moral and deliberative clarity we can muster. In Thinking in a Pandemic, we’ve organized the latest arguments from doctors and epidemiologists, philosophers and economists, legal scholars and historians, activists and citizens, as they think not just through this moment but beyond it. While much remains uncertain, Boston Review’s responsibility to public reason is sure. That’s why you’ll never see a paywall or ads. It also means that we rely on you, our readers, for support.
