Read excerpts
What is the opposite of a stone?
What is the opposite of silk?
Skin — a bare neck — the feather
of the passing winter crow
one sees as one lifts eyes
to a mist-strung sky in hope.
How much can one
body carry? I stand
outside myself, fight
against vanishing.
What is the opposite of fog?
Who I am, what I want.
Skin — feather — your hands
at my throat, tenderly.
The rattle of a key.
That sky, unlocking.
