To begin June on a fresh note, an excerpt from "Just Like That" by Maya Stein:

rising from the garden
lined with dirt
skin streaked ochre
her back hot from too much exposure
the palms of her hands
a mulch of spent stalk and frantic insects
the writer realized
how guiltless she felt
abandoning the desk, the poised pen,
how much she didn't miss
that ludicrous arch her neck had to make
to shuffle the contents of her head.
