You are a white sheet
and I am a fingeró
dipping
inside the throat of a song birdó
bunting blue
crossbill red
thrasher brown
goldfinch yellow
raven blackó
dripping
gurgling
raining
downing your eyes
in slow motionó
iron bars
thicket fence
wattle walls
gillnets fine
square-meshed
double knotted
deep stretched
darkness - light
speckled - enjoined
framed - spinning
in dangerous patterns
without samenessó
what would you do to me?
Imagine.
