“Who is the thread who walks beside you?”
Raccoon purls, femur boots like snakeskin. The sea makes one voice, waterfall another.
Slop of cutbank nose flute, shell green, “your eyes know where to go.”
Licorice fern, “call me fishmeal.” Of three, one remained,
“Turtle with snake head,” “That’s human hair,” afterlife beading like warm rain,
The sea makes one voice, waterfall another.
