"Who said anything about being forgiven? I am most / forgivable with my daughters crowned & Sunday // I call my mother to tell her about the slippers I’ve misplaced / wandering from theater to theater in search // of a face like mine thundered cliffside, but even the emptied / fish know better than to hope." --Lily Zhou, "Palinode in a Lost City"
