14 May
puffy white clouds pink gray brains
fight the yellow face of sun
swell with black water to turn
feet to the rivers and lakes
the fire stick splitting the sky
bites the barked branch blasts it off
to sing the earring poet's head
burning feathers off his neck
swim siesta blood-eye dead

4.7 10/7
