“HOW TO BE YOUR OWN REAPER”

HOW TO BE YOUR OWN REAPER:

they dangled and cracked
like the hearts he
liked to collect,
ornaments that pulsed
like drumbeats,
sizzled like firecrackers.

by Devanshi Khetarpal

Each of us reads the water like a different loaf of bread
that’s been kept on the shelf;
bought two weeks ago
after much haggling.
