Poem | Cave Painting

“The land is wide and made of stone. / The horizon is unseen, but also rock. The excited, / fearful cheers, too, are grain / beside grain of lime-stone.”

Poem | Salt

Domestic presence, staple, / residue of tears, / buoyancy, the rocking buoy / saying to drifting children / here, where I am / you may drop your nets
