  • In the Peanut Hospital
    • Abstract: © City of Boston Archives, CC BY-SA 2.0 via FlickrMy mother wouldn’t tell me the name of her surgery—it was for old ladies, and she didn’t want to talk about it. No, it wasn’t dangerous, yes, she’d stay the night in a hospital, and she wanted me there and at home with her for a few days afterward. My father would be there too, but he wasn’t good around sick people or hospitals, though he’d been a sick person in a hospital twice in recent memory.I’m not sick, she assured me. There’s nothing wrong with me. It’s a female surgery, she said, like that answered things.I made plans to drive to Virginia, to the distant hospital in Suffolk where her doctor practiced. We had reservations at a Quality Inn that looked seedy ... Read More

  • Dear Clarice
    • Abstract: © Quinn Dombrowski, CC BY-SA 2.0 via FlickrYOU ARE THE LAST PERSON I EXPECT to be interested in my explanations and confessions, and yet you’re the only person I can think of to address them to. As I write, I imagine the ballet of reactions on your face; that familiar mix of—forgive me—envy and disgust. Exhaustion. I imagine each upcurled lip and puckered brow, and feel them play out across my own features. You know we made identical faces at one another, always. It was our only real common ground as sisters: being so different that we responded to one another in exactly the same baffled way.So I’m sending you these pages, because I know you’ll be compelled to read them all the way through, by your parallel senses ...

  • From the Editor: An Editor and a Poet
    • Abstract: During the past nearly three years, we at Ecotone experienced some great luck—the company of Jason Bradford, our coeditor for poetry, and of his mother, Shirley Niedermann. Early this year, just after the semester’s first meeting of the graduate practicum that supports Ecotone, Jason went into the hospital. Six days later, he passed away.Jason’s exceptional devotion to poetry was wide enough to encompass both his own craft and his work on behalf of poetic community. He saw the value of curation, of making homes for other people’s work—and in his time with this magazine, he sharpened his editorial skills and encouraged his colleagues to do the same. In that first meeting of the new year, I asked our MFA editors to ... Read More

  • Death Next Door
    • Abstract: © shaunl, via istockOne morning in late May, an unmistakable odor filled my backyard. Alarmed, I turned off the garden hose and looked beneath shrubs and trees, expecting to find a dead raccoon or squirrel, but there was nothing. I went inside and told my husband, John, that a critter must have demised. John said he had noticed the smell too. Later, when we were doing the lunch dishes, voices clamored close by. I peered out the window. Men in blue uniforms were swarming a tiny rental house next door.“The police are over there,” I told John. With them were the property owner and her son, but there was no sign of their tenant, Doug, an EMT in his late fifties.John looked over my shoulder. Lightning fast, he made a ... Read More

  • The Mad King
    • Abstract: © Porsche Brosseau, CC BY 2.0 via FlickrDARCIE WAS RUNNING OUT OF FLIRTATION TECHNIQUES. Cyril wasn’t that interested in the shit in her purse, in third-wave feminism, in extended eye contact, but then—then!—he brushed back his hair, and that seemed to dislodge something in his frontal lobe. He offered a sexy asymmetrical smile. He wanted to talk about her job suddenly, about how she taught computer programming.So she was off.A computer program was a set of instructions. A programming language, say C++, got translated into machine language, which was all digits, all binary numbers, just zeroes and ones, either/or, but Cyril started to get confused when Darcie got into that, so she backtracked. It was like a recipe ... Read More

  • Melvin in the Sixth Grade
    • Abstract: MAYBE IT WAS AROUND THE TIME that the Crips sliced up my brother’s arm for refusing to join their gang. Or it could have been around the time that the Crips and the Bloods shot up the neighborhood one Halloween so we couldn’t go trick-or-treating. It could have even been the time that my brother’s friend, Anthony, got shot for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. But my father decided it was time to take advantage of a veteran’s loan, get out of LA, and move to the suburbs. Even if I can’t quite nail the events that spurred the move, I know that one and half months after I climbed into my father’s rusted-out Buick Wildcat and said good-bye to 80th Street and hello to Vermillion Street with its lawns and ...

           Grade”
    • Abstract: We often forget that significant cultural battles are waged every day on the playground. As adults, it is easy to harbor this utterly ridiculous idea that childhood is either a time of great innocence—think of a baby sleeping, of utter freedom, no bills to pay!—or subterranean evil—bad seed, anyone? But well-executed coming-of-age stories remind us that life’s major dilemmas play out on the kidscape with at least as much nuance and complexity as they do in the adult world. Dana Johnson’s “Melvin in the Sixth Grade” illuminates the ways that conflicts around race, class, and gender color the lives of children. We remember the Little Rock Nine, who integrated Central High School in the fifties, but we seem to lose ... Read More

  • What We Fed to the Manticore
    • Abstract: © Matthias Ripp, CC BY 2.0 via Flickr, and lettering by F. Morgan DavisTHEY SAY THAT LIFE IN THE SUNDARBANS revolves around two things: the tide and the tigers.We are not the tide.We are the tigers.It was not what we ate that troubled the villagers, because we had been eating very little. It was what we fed to the Manticore. He arrived hungry. And he could never be satisfied.WE WERE GATHERED IN A GROVE of mangrove trees that I had come to think of as our own. They had been special to me. The villagers called them sundari trees, but I knew them as looking-glass mangroves. Their exposed roots stood perpendicular to the ground, like curved knife-edges, wandering in the shape of little rivers. Secretly, I had begun to ... Read More

  • Going Downhill from Here
    • Abstract: The nude in Marcel Duchamp’s famed 1912 painting Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 does not appear to need a railing. She seems quite capable of walking down stairs, multiplied as she is into several incarnations, a body for each stair. Division of labor, rendering the task of each step far less daunting. As Duchamp parcels out her golden motion, the nude is anything but graceful, her body—or bodies—serviceable, put together more efficiently than we are, with the bulk of her in the calves, the feet: sturdy, working legs. Her head, translucent waves of motion, all flurry at higher elevations, weighs little on her arm-pumping shoulders. She doesn’t even need to think until she reaches the lowest step, where her head ... Read More

  • A Poem Is Its Own Animal: Poetic Encounters at the Arizona-Sonora Desert
           Museum
    • Abstract: On summer nights when the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is open, people bring black lights to shine on the stone walls, in search of scorpions. The animals glow under ultraviolet light. Human visitors are rarely disappointed in their quest—and yes, it’s probably better for them to see scorpions here than in a closet at home. Thinking about these encounters got me to wondering—are there poems that would glow in black light?As the Desert Museum’s poet in residence, I had the chance to find out. I asked Alberto Álvaro Ríos if he had any scorpion poems, and he e-mailed me a couple of his one-line greguerías:Scorpions are lobsters sent west by the witness protection program.The scorpion carries on its back the question ...

  • Out of Place: Losing the House
    • Abstract: © Mark HonerkampThe house is like a novel. For many years I called it “my father’s house,” but that was wrong. It is my mother’s house, and it has always been. It is my mother’s novel.It is my mother’s house, my mother’s novel, because she is the one who found its bones. She was driving from her home in Worcester, Massachusetts, to Cape Cod, when, passing through the town of Middleboro, she saw the old house. It was scheduled to be torn down so that the new highway, Route 495, could be built, and my mother pulled over, curious. The house had been built in 1726, a real Cape Codder with cedar shingles, wide oak floorboards, and thick hewn beams the color of chocolate. Before my mother left she had purchased the ... Read More

  • Dispatches from Anywhere but Here
    • Abstract: © Paul Sableman, CC BY 2.0 via FlickrMy need to flee began long before I called it that. It started as a series of adventures, and then it became more pressing, more intentional. Sometimes I thought my aimlessness might have been friction resulting from Corey’s absence. The boy next door whose bedroom window had faced mine for years as we grew from children into adolescents into hormonal teenagers, the boy who I imagined would someday be mine, had instead been sentenced to life in prison for murder my junior year of high school. I was still troubled by losing him, though I never spoke of it to anyone. The fact that I still thought of him in this way worried me. Why couldn’t I incriminate him like everyone else and ...

  • From Ford Over
    • Abstract: The image / poem / maps that follow are part of Ford Over, published by Noemi Press in 2016. The project is cutup and aggregate and mashup: made of language drawn from the multilingual chronicles of explorers who traveled through the land now known as the state of Texas, including Juan Luis (Jean Louis) Berlandier, a Franco-Mexican botanist who explored Northern Mexico, drawing maps, writing, and collecting plants, as part of the 1826 Comisión de los Limites (the Mexican Boundary Commission). The pieces were made by layering words on top of pixelated, shadowy PDF scans of microfilmed copies of Berlandier’s journals. The words are drawn from two different sources. “[pretty wet]” was made by applying constraints and ... Read More

  • We Are Not Alone!
    • Abstract: © Renée Y. LabontéIN THEIR SOLAR SYSTEM, all the companion planets are cheaply made. Shockingly so. Hasty scans by my spectrometer have revealed the core of each to be made from pig iron, and with a high sulphur content. Instead of being identified by name, these low-budget planets are whitewashed with huge numerals. Unsurprisingly, their orbital velocity is more or less devoid of enthusiasm.For that matter, even their sun is a dismal affair, burning at a third of the luminosity we expect from ours. I was told their government balks at expending tax revenue on the great quantities of gold any first-rate solar sphere requires for fuel, and that same cultural frugality has funded no really brilliant stars whatever. ...

  • The Journey Home
    • Abstract: © Sundaram Ramaswamy, CC BY 2.0 via FlickrAt the center of a temple, a dark room. The blinds are half open, and dust floats in the slats of light. The room is a library in name—glass-doored bookcases line the walls—but it is mostly a closet in function. In here are the objects belonging to a life forever in transit: two metal lockers, a doctor’s scale used to weigh luggage, and stacks of not-yet-unpacked cardboard boxes, old and soft, the weathered flaps not sealed with tape but tucked into each other for easy access. Among these objects, on gray folding tables, occupying most of the room, stand row upon row of statues of the Hindu god Ganesha. Some are nearly a foot tall; others, no larger than a thumb. Hundreds ... Read More

  • Becoming Earth
    • Abstract: This is the best thing about Face-book,” I wrote on Eva Saulitis’s page last fall, a few months before she died. And it was. I only met Eva twice and only had one substantial conversation with her, at a hotel bar in Homer, Alaska, where, outside the window, whales breached and otters swam by on their backs while eating lunch on the tables of their bellies. I only knew the world outside that window superficially, but Eva knew it deeply. Her studies on the effects of oil on killer whales were groundbreaking, and by recording hundreds of hours of their calls she learned that the whales she studied, in Prince William Sound, essentially spoke their own language. She got to know whales as individuals. Her approach to ... Read More

  • Apology
    • Abstract: © Jane MolinaryI’VE BEEN HERE IN THE DESERT, in this little town, for two months now. I don’t know if you would like it out here on the high southwestern plains but I suspect not. Such windblown open spaces. The trees in town give way to endless arid prairie. The constant passage of long, loud trains, busy, muscular, saddening.I know our little boy would like that, at least. The trains.Yesterday, along the tracks west of town, the Union Pacific boomed down with five engines and three hundred double-stacked cars. Six hundred cars, if a piggyback is two. You can believe that or not.The mares and foals were gone from their pasture. Eight large crows flew from the cistern there, silent, blown by the southwest gray-blue ... Read More
