A Section of ‘Mirror Flag’ from Living In

Steve Willey




he seemed,

very cold, and you,


wires on the street

and any text may engage





they, they


used to cost

with several of these meanings




to have no proper teeth

put you in like this chair but


young men

at once




how was he then, to grasp,

it is iron


their lives

some possible aspects of




the key

and more high


Rabin’s army

the mirror
