poem
My mother lives under the ground
so I am drawn to that country

still air cools      water trickles black
roots tower     down   in her house

up here a sky    never whole
buoys around    light of the moon 

        I could spend half a year
down where she always lives


	*

respiration of sky
moisture of sheets
