The night after the police killed a boy in the streets, a luna moth appeared on the spokes of my bike. Its green wings translucent, bathed in light from the supermoon that pushed down on our front porch where I sat beside the tires, the August air thick, the sound of the television sifting through the screen door as my father watched protests inside on the Sunday evening news, protests because the boy was unarmed, protests because the officer had fired twelve rounds. Enjoy an excerpt of Anne Valente’s (An Elegy for Mathematics, originally published by Origami Zoo Press, joined Bull City Press in 2015) “Good-bye, Saint Louis” published at Kenyon Review.
