by this poet


And here I am Mother, slick haired and heaving
A kind of elk, something, a sort of human elk
Digitally inserted into the prehistory of his nation
Twenty feet tall and roaring and extinct

Mother, I’m a mammal, when I’m sleeping I’m exuding
As the little pony reaches the shimmering pines
