Entries from the Imagined Bestiary 50 Beasts to Break Your Heart by GennaRose Nethercott
Beats

Yunes were human once. / They nursed babies and baked bread and made love beneath the shade of the willow tree. / Then they were drowned in the bog on the edge of town. / The marshlands kept them flawless. / Their skin tanned tight as a drum skin, sealing their spirits inside like caged dogs.

Three Poems by Diana Arterian

Vast plates shifted littler ones / with constant sounds and heat terrible / Then there was a cleft and so a river
