Decomposition in Three Acts


Poetry by:
JORDAN CHESNUT


Excerpts from:“Diary: A Decomposition in Three Acts”

These poems are excerpts from a longer manuscript which performs a decomposition of a family member's Civil War diary and includes characters, a dramatic preface, three acts with exposition, and footnotes. The slashes are the mycelium threads from an (ASCII) mushroom.
