Finally, big shout out to homegirl Rae Armantrout who won the Pulitzer Prize for Versed! Here’s a poem (previously published in jubilat #11):


The thing that makes us human,
monkey-see, monkey-do speed-up,
a “call to mimesis,”
now comes from everywhere at once.

The cumulus
and the white flash
from under
the mocking-bird’s wing
make what?

Repeat wake measurement.
“Check to see”
“Check to see,”
birds say,
“that enough time
has passed.”
