1. Eat When You Can. Sleep When You Can./
With the pad of my finger I collect crumb/

Deven Kolluri reads “Perlmutter Cancer Center,”a poem by Abba Belgrave
They told me that other senses/
would rush in. Now the atmosphere/
is shredded through trees
To survive this exile, you will need/
to hold court with the moon, store the memory/
of its light in a mason jar for later.

full of unmapped regions,
My husband has been into town./
I can smell the out of doors/
in his hair, on his cheek
