of disbelief,
she is borrow water,
trestle and truss and step
-stone moon. She is covered in
beam, arched shoulders waiting,
a time to build; a time to learn:

There are
some things to cross,
and some to burn.



NaPoWriMo, day 28.

    I love the spiritual undertones in the closing. She is “borrow water” and “stone moon.” My word, that is gorgeous.
