Extinguish me from this.

Extinguish me from this.

A Poem by Deepshikha

A poem written using only words found in Lucie Brock-Broido's poems "A Girl Ago" and "Carnivorous." Written as part of a class assignment.

God, milkweed, rose milk;
I, ink, flickering, above and


Ocean salt, carnall wish,
I, saying we might speak,

Of juniper, or metal, blinking, 
like fireflies, the world in passing.

The night, hoarding sky,
counting hour, hour,


An intemperate wish, woods of
wisteria, feeding on burrs, mouth
quickens, in unison with
wrong hearts.

Rustling branch. Velvet kindling.
Chance, jammed wrong; nothing said.

Extinguish me from this.
