the thing itself

    The blacked-out portions in the blackout poem make me feel as though the thing is hovering. The free-floating anxiety that comes when you’re waiting for the thing can be like a fear that paralyzes at the brain-stem level. Glad to have found your work here, just a little ways down the interstate from my nesting grounds in the woods near Pensacola.
