{Reissue} I Ask You to Tell Me a Story by Mary Coons

you say you’ll tell me a lie1
and call it a parable
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                              
1there were two girls in the forest
                         now there’s one

she’s digging well
past nightfall
emptying a hole
                         of sky
                              into
                                sky
