Strange Vines (an erasure), by bbb

after "Figs," by Amanda Deutch

Strange vines
in the sink

finally I snuck out
to the village

the men all stared at me
trying to write

about africa
with dirty fingernails

blue shared cab
white rice

mint tea moon
meaning fever

wow. I love this. It is such a beautiful simple distillation of language and evokes a lot without extraneous words.
