Dovecote
Max Ekstrom
Abrahamic
On this last eve of spring you uncover shapes of angels dancing in the fallen dusk entries from a lost concordance cast out from winking eyes of branches against the sky. You’re on edge like a man unscathed in his leveled house— the calm within an ember of the sun portends how far your fatherhood will be tested
