THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Valais” by Michael Hofmann: apricots, hay, appear, beef, stone, carry, shoulders, piped, sensors, running, archaic, everything

We didn’t start the fire
We lost everything
Baby on my shoulders
Running till it hurts

We lost everything
Appears pipes archaic
No rain, hay too dry
Apricots being burned

Baby on my shoulders
Carry my loved one
Sensors not functioning
Tripped over stone

Running till it hurts
Hope the others are saved
We didn’t start the fire
We lost everything
