You can ladle me up with the bees.
Goodbye ferocious meadows, fencelines, raucous birds.
How your eyes painted light into every corner of darkness
though we cracked a kind smile, the clouds conspired otherwise
I’ll just leave this here.
When a man can’t give his liver he’s not going to give his heart.
An occasion peeled from the window.

Note: This is a different version of an exquisite corpse with no restrictions. Each poet contributed a word for the title and a line for the poem. Everything will be organized according to whoever responded first. The resulting poem can be a little chaotic, since each poet does not know what has been written or what will be written.
