petrified wood posture

eloise, is that you?
I thought I recognized
your failure to encumber
even the sweetest among bones

see if you can live without
living with jeeter
in his wilderness
or have you accomplished that

if you have recently polished
the least of your possessions
throttle me for parts of speech
I otherwise fail to release

a little of the snow
has fallen to the shoulders
are those yours
those shoulders powdered shoulders
