  • Sometimes it's enough just to observe the body
    that gave you your body, the responsible material
    that set an eddy in the aging stream,
    swirling the entrusted pattern to Life

    Mountains give her gratitude highs, the wind, even slight,
    makes her eyes water effusively, she pats them with her scarlet scarf
    and strides over rocks thronged by the pine needle drop
    Making her way away from me, further along the path

    The trail marker, a blood drop on ashen stone, comments to me
    Blood follows blood.
    Keep warm.
