  • Apricot Jam

    by Erin Hyatt

    Here, it is always 1985.
    There is spoiled chicken
    salad on the patio furniture;
    there are apricots
    rotting on the ground.
    I sink my teeth into July,
    and boil orange fruit to the bone
    on a gasoline fire that stinks
    like rust. Just down the road,
    an old tractor hums back to life.
