Miller’s knot, bag knot. I could have been
a cut-up. Might collection
turn profession: occasional nisbit, carting
jars of filberts. I never found
the throwing knives. They corroded;
how smoked meat
turns the color of mahogany. Mahogany
is key. To keep without
cold, try eggs in water-glass. To keep
a pork blood from clot, use salt.
A vinegar for duck. Donkeys are good
watch animals but kill calves.

of me and fret the scud. I carry

opposing grief knot, preventing fray.
Help fund the next generation of Black journalists, editors, and publishers.
Boston Review’s Black Voices in the Public Sphere Fellowship is designed to address the profound lack of diversity in the media by providing aspiring Black media professionals with training, mentorship, networking opportunities, and career development workshops. The program is being funded with the generous support of Derek Schrier, chair of Boston Review’s board of advisors, the Ford Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, but we still have $50,000 left to raise to fully fund the fellowship for the next two years. To help reach that goal, if you make a tax-deductible donation to our fellowship fund through August 31 it will be matched 1:1, up to $25,000—so please act now to double your impact.
