Margin: Exploring Modern Magical Realism

TOILETS ARE COUGHING

Mothers have fallen
through ice rinks

all over the city.
The campus toilets

are coughing and
the school president is punishing

his elbows and shins.
Suddenly hundreds of squirrels

flee the oak trees and hurl
into sewers.

Somewhere near
a genius must be insane.
