Oh, Wow, Mausoleums,

A new poem

by Kathleen Ossip
says the man who doesn’t remind me of you

except that everything reminds me of you, except mausoleums.

In the important world (my imagination), I am watching you, simply, without hope or dream. In the unimportant world, this man and I are driving past the cemetery.

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

To read the full piece, please purchase a copy of the magazine from The McSweeney’s Store.

Kathleen Ossip is the author of The Search Engine and Cinephrastics, a chapbook of movie poems. Her new book, The Cold War, will be published in May.
