Quadrille Poem for Quadrille Monday

Written for Quadrille Monday and in response to A.E. Stallings’ “Extinction of Silence.”


It is not the only one of its kind.

You might find its bolder, harsher cousin

In the letters you did not receive

From an estranged sibling

Or sitting in a chair

At your grandmother’s bedside.

It will not go extinct without a fight.
