When my mother was a galaxy—Aimée Keeble

zygote: egg of heaven
milk-light and boil

to lay a nothing down in fertile silt
and line our crystal skins with god

a creature made of ruminants and Way
and the flesh is reiterated
and I carry her eyes

Aimée has her Master of Letters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow and is represented by Ayla Zuraw-Friedland at the David Black Agency. Aimée lives in North Carolina with her dog Cowboy and is working on her first novel. She is the grand-niece of Beat writer and poet Alexander Trocchi.
