A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

Spell for Lost Things

because you stole her phone
all these things happened like
would've happened in the 90s
ringing doorbells
walking long distances
occult bookshops
but also things that never would've
like just emailing back and forth
instead of texting
and recording a podcast
where we talked about
our teenage selves

whoever you are, thief,
you are scum
and changed the time in my day
