The Northville Review
an online literary journal
the electronic match, made and lit

David LaBounty

for you this is the season,

with its vision of a
new and hopeful woman

staring at the ceiling
in your kitchen, her

back leaning against
the just scrubbed stove, her

ankles bare and
crossed, a veteran

wineglass limp and
expectant in her hand.
