Volume 9 (Spring 2015)

Emily Pettit



The Wife Life


Like a beehive

Strife strife a knife of

Strife through your life

Goodwife housewife

Oldwife nightlife

A saxophone undertone

An unknown whalebone

This isn't a wrong song

Mushroom perfume

You boom boom

You back down

But you behave

How do you behave
