ABSTRACT
Two prose poems excerpted from "Hedge" by Pilar Fraile Amador and translated from the Spanish by Forrest Gander is presented. "Hedge" First Line: even the runt of the litter knows how to pluck its own parasites. Last Line: and suddenly the sense that something, that someone, has been sucked under. "A Lot" First Line: on the lot full of sand and excrement with his boots tucked into wool trousers the man is feeding the brood. Last Line: lose them or as though we might take off flying.
