  • Sea-goat

     

    the seagull’s neck hangs limp,

    swallowed by green lake.

     

    I wait there,

    paper bird folded up

    tight.

     

    buoyant moons echo

    on the wake.

     

    centripetal balances

    centrifugal.

     

    fixed in gravity,

    I count your teeth

     

    marks on my skin,

    capricornus oval

    constellations.

     

    return, sea-goat

    I swallow your pit.
