Joanna Ruocco

The eldest daughter crouches in the hutch. For the younger in the spine-crib, the governess chews a bit of meat. I am content to lick lime plaster. Master's sockets hold his wolfhound's eyes. He built an armature to stretch the pelt and wheels it on the wainroads. I follow, belling.

Joanna Ruocco is the author of THE MOTHERING COVEN and MAN'S COMPANIONS.
