Anne Carson: Some Linebreaks

Love Town

She ran in.
Wet corn.
Yellow braid.
Down her back.

Wolf Town

Let tigers.
Kill them let bears.
Kill them let tapeworms and roundworms and heartworms.
Kill them let them.
Kill each other let porcupine quills.
Kill them let salmon poisoning.
Kill them let them cut their tongues on a bone and bleed.
To death let them.
Freeze let eagles.
Snatch them when young let a windblown seed.
Bury itself in their inner ear destroying equilibrium let them have.
Very good ears let them yes.
Hear a cloud pass.
