A Map in My Blood
Excerpt

flames corralled within this pit  lick
rocks like blackbirds flicker reeds
silhouettes dance the once bright beach
pluck stars to throw on sand with
the randomness of raindrops sparking slate
quick bare feet avoid the sting

 

young throats yip           
coyote pups on the ridge
beckon the moon as feet slap boards
stretched to the drowning sun
leap into rippled silver

 

damp air lays its fingers on shoulders
run to stand by the jackpine fire
wrap skinny arms about your chest
wet hair snakes a cheek as you grin        
an ember in ash     prepared
to hurl yourself through dark
