An Exploded Sestina
Shannon Maguire

Post-plague reading, reassembling the Myrmidons — a selection of ant troops/tropes

winter is a virus that July hosts in her blue moon software

jostling syllables not like not at all like collagelision

each word
is an individual fruit
with her own seed

the best tasting
are grown wild

For “fruit” I almost read “form”. And so is effected a “collage & elision” as I almost read “jousting” for “jostling”. Almost. At most.

And so for day 1444
