Everything in the Universe

Firefly fossil, / entombed in sap stone, light gobbled by a centuries-old setting / of trapped-air pearls

Wherever the Land Is

Anyone can feed a horse a carrot, but only a rider creates the possibility for traveling it. 

Cracker Sonnets

What it means to have a woman's body, / Virginia Leabus tells her daughter, "is to stand at the mouth of the cave / and be the cave. Bats flying out of it like hearts."
