Rove the earth
Looking for blue snow
The cetacean’s song
The singular whisper of a feather.
Nomad of the broken syllable
Seeking the sky
May not lead to wholeness.
The flooding of air into your lung
The beginning of a difficult voyage.
Push your peripatetic beak
Into the magician’s hat.
Ribbons, scarves, copper wires, cathodes.
A ship in a bottle.
A mercury lake in the palm of a hand.
Link your lines
To the snail’s spiral.
Be unafraid of the opposite of speed.
Gather every gift
And walk across the untamed page.
