Read an Excerpt

From “Santa Fe Soul Cento,” by Debbie Brody

Don’t speak of things no one can believe in
on the corner of a heavy heart.
Spread wide, shaking the ground.
Make the Mardi Gras small enough
      so it fits under the table
at rest where you began
Resist drowning altogether,
light a candle.
Even your silence holds a sort of prayer.
