work_excerpt: 
"...So Krispy Kreme, I salute your white hat, your green awning, your many hours, your thin brown coffee water, your soft belly fat, your heavy machinery, your late night and early morning revelations, your true American wrecking ball survival, your new world luxury — the consequence of someone else’s not giving up." --Ode to Krispy Kreme, featured in Ambit "There's nothing I can say about coal barges and their long marriage to rivers that hasn't already been said, like water is beautiful and necessary and every barge is a woman floating face down, in a steel dress, carrying on her back whatever people leave there." --What Jealousy Does, featured in IDK
