Shh, goes the twist on the bread loaf bag. Your breath like boots through plasticky snow. Bubble gum pops: surgical mask. Kissing sounds compose the neighborhood dogs. Why take a picture of something that already exists? sun Sun on my chest like a permission slip taped to a child. I am so small I lean back to open doors. So many things I’ll never lift.
I make a thousand tiny snow angels with this corkscrew. I sleep with my belly 36 to her back like I’m holding in a wound. beasts I let you walk along the curb, being more concerned with cars out of storefronts. A man becomes an undertaker because he cannot afford flowers. A girl reading a book soaked by rain reaches out her hand to feel for rain. I whisper timber. I whisper fall. I climb the trees and feel for fruit with my boots. Every beast is afraid of some other beast. If you keep enough beasts around you, all the beasts will stay away.
