Letter from the Desert Museum

On the coldest day in two decades,

Chicago’s snow is heaped mid-thigh,

schools have dispensed with children,

and cars creep in a creamsickle dawn . . .

–Excerpt from “Letter from the Desert Museum” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago, 2016). First published in Atlanta Review.
