  • YOU MAY confidently Lumber me 
    by slowly Hanging as often as I
    Glide through summer.

    FLUTTERING,WINGING with the flock 
    in the shadow of the beast.

    WITH RAYS SUNG EARTHWARDS 
    the beaks Probe onto this terrain.

    YOU HOLD 
    Undulating with your bill 
    you are the Fluttering light.

    IN THE LIGHT 
    east of the future 
    I Swipe the rays, 
    which you slowly shadowwrite.

    BEFORE YOUR LATE FACE 
    a Flapping 
    between hollows 
    that change me too.

    1. We lumber in the shadows 
    between the two shoulders 
    that support us as we ascend.

    2. We look up at the massive form 
    and traverse into the funneling space, enshadowed, 
    probing towards the bridge.

    3. We conceal ourselves from the light and ascend the pinching tunnel looking up into the ribs.
    We expose ourselves into the light and splay across the back of the colossus, the group splits in two.

    4. Half walk beneath the soaring plateau as the others weave
    through the Fluttering terrain.
    We disperse through the beams of light, the others project from the shadows, scattered.

    5. We converge in the mouth, 
    pecking the floor, descending into the belly of the beast.

    6. We cluster into the belly, 
    ribs surrounding us,  recognizing and recalling the path we came from.
    We lumber toward the light
    creeping under the hanging 
    terrain, our shadows growing and projecting onto the structure, consuming the light.
    human and beast become shadow.
