  • Terrorized by dragon flies
    –on the bridge nearthespot
    where the snake lived –by the wild grapevine

    where the water is the deepest

    coolfright slowtrauma risinghum
    deafening cicada
    unimaginable insects

    smothered by alfalfa
    and that dry dirt - frenzied milkweed
    smell

    sun
    poisoning
    raging fever
    looking down

    off
    the
    bridge


    at

    the

    creek

    the creek where the snake lived
    by the wild grapevine
