You Lost the Game

by Shannon Hearn



how does a separation work in terms of the seams/in terms of/the seems

me/forgetting my jeans in E–’s car irritated they were left/in her trunk and realizing/by opening/my trunk it wasn’t her trunk

it was/mine


how to correct(ly) say a truth: (mouth opens)


think about the different parts/not the pieces/the parts of the whole there is a  difference/i swear there is/a difference in the parts

that work/to make the hole
