clay girl

(based on matina poem)

skin /spastic under long perforated ratios of
metal / perfect always enveloping
earthenware like
stone


clay bloodlines beyond gesture
mere windows
outflow
luminescence /a pearl
grazes
the silky roots lifting all membranes
benudes spume alloys /sidled glyphs
crawling against / along fern Belly :


waxy--slow crevasses stretch silence into resinous

loved skin

crackles
