Some People Like Poetry.
The poetic stylings of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
HMH Terms and Conditions
“My mother was a braid of black smoke.
She bore me swaddled over the burning cities.
The sky was a vast and windy place for a child
We met many others who were just like us.
They were trying to put on their overcoats with
arms made of smoke.
The high heavens were full of little shrunken
deaf ears instead of stars.”
