Women Appearing as Presents

By Amanda Nadelberg, from a manuscript in progress. Nadelberg’s most recent collection of poetry, Songs from a Mountain, was published in May by Coffee House Press.

In the city every day
There is sun at three to
Be eaten at the tavern like
Brave potatoes on Sacramento
A vestibule of gender to look
At friends and wonder over
Zippers in unordinary places
An updated flash for songs
To be sung on machines
We drag to bed
