Lori Lubeski and Jeanette Landrie

from has the river of the body risen

and dreamed of a curse
detached from his own
perishable existence
ridden out through the longing
of desired branching
ignited capillaries
slow to engulf him


surround him in
indelible light
feverish lines down
disturbed angry road
into transition

in minimal detail
we would describe the
breaking point
under which fine
scales tip into the next
category of body
