imp in the garden

gardenII

her eyes: amphibious,

drowsy until they’re

not –

gardenIII gardenIV

vaulting alive

with the punch

of

predator-on-prey.

gardenVII gardenVI

her fingers:

at home in every ragtag corner

tasting the

oddments

of life

in their tips:

gardenV

tiny, human circles

that surprise me,

because

i always thought

she was

a changeling.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.
