Sandra Doller

Severed Line.


chorus lending/arch/road’s long

say so

wall sounds blows cool

+ i cannot work where i shouldn’t be

alley candle clings


ninety + miss a little/the frost

miss the margins the season rakes

as war width hollers close/how corporal

the stinger

matures the oh

narrative bruise repeats people

don’t buff with stone/people

slumber coral

in the gym/a tergum same time

this leather’s a riot

Sam Cooke cul-de-sac

there will be in the stirring of the vocal vain

open to stone’s throw’s throw

to throw oneself

into the valley cool candle to

sever one’s parts/there is a home there.

Sandra Doller’s first book was Oriflamme—a word featured in the 2009 National Spelling Bee—and her second collection, Chora, is forthcoming from Ahsahta Press in March 2010; she recently finished a new manuscript, called Man Years. Doller is the founder & editrice of the curiously named 1913 a journal of forms/1913 Press and Assistant Professor at California State University. She lives way out west with her man and their dogs.
