Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

ANSELM BERRIGAN
A short history of autumn
New York City fails to be spectacular from my teacher’s car.
And the van that booted me into Brooklyn last night, it has
my sympathy. My sympathy was parked in a strange place last
night. It hasn’t come back. Did I think of my sympathy as a dog?
A dog licking my neck all night?
Sympathy licking my neck all night kept me up all night &
the anti-depressant medication I swallowed before bed tho’
it wasn’t prescribed to me & I wasn’t depressed kept me up
all night.
