Penicillin

 

 

Nance Van Winckel

The Last Good Leg's Kicked Away,

 

and the papier mâché mountain
topples off its table. Rudely
awakened, the tin soldiers
stir and go still again
on the flattened plain.

 

 

 

NANCE VAN WINCKEL's newest book is Ever Yrs., a novel in the form of a scrapbook (Twisted Road, 2014). Book of No Ledge, an altered encyclopedia, will appear with Pleiades Press in November 2016. Nance lives in Spokane and teaches in the MFA Programs at E. Washington University and Vermont College of Fine Arts.
