Canary

Rae Armantrout
10 Snaps

       1
Some folks got tortured
by folks

right afterwards
at an obscure

farmer’s market
where handcrafted soda

and artisanal mining

showed
we were on the right track.

2

Canaries
served as coq-au-vin.

3

We thought of events
as landmarks

first,
then as life-buoys,

but in this too
we were mistaken.
