Book Cover with Landscape

Across the white snow and underneath the white snow
cornstalks scattered like bones the bones like cornstalks
the faces upturned and the faces buried
the crows that wander about are like the black stitches
when we have not yet closed up the wound

If this were a children's book
the stick figures would wear a happy hat.

but on this book—
they are only sticks

sticks drawn without names
