sweating through the longest day of the year
tentacles of ice
beside the spring
the millipede’s carnival colors
I forget where I am
sun-drenched spring woods
finding a dead leaf
to wipe my brow

who kept giving me forms to fill out.
I’m impressed anew by the sheer inventiveness of death.

wetlands in winter
I crush another cathedral
with every step
dog in the fog
muzzle swiveling to catch
