According to the old religion, a scribe
must bathe in natural running water
before she draws what is dictated to her,
because writing's just like cleaning a mirror,
she says, it's like rearranging stains
left on wholesome rivers. For three nights,
I drew geometric shapes in the margins;
I had been instructed to take notes on
the underside of snow, and how it colonized
the lithosphere, musically and without hurt.
It felt like a call, but it wasn't a calling.
The paper was made in Himalayan foothills
by a woman who had cleansed knots from fibrous bark
and dipped her bleached hands into boiling water.
I mangled the page into a cottage, then a castle;
for I imagine that the grime of Dublin
could fold me up into my questions. But to give
creative attention is always an act of love,
and the most sincere. You have always known that
only at the fringes of the intellect
can love become voice. So may
it all be fringes and love
its nonexistence, but not yet, not yet.

her heart stopped beating in the night,
the arteries holding it in place let go;
it drifted until it reached her womb
and calcified.
a tomb dedicated to the stone child of heaven.
she washed her flat abdomen with holy water
and anointed herself with balsam and oil.
a medusa after athena abandoned her, broken
in the sea.

To me, your tears
smell like strawberry oatmeal.
And you're beautiful
When sleepless.
My love changes people.
Like wolverines change small animals.
Like apocalypses change fragile things.
With a graceless blink.
My kisses are serrated talons
And when you get cut,
To me, your blood smells like
Whiskey and vanilla candles.

i may have forgotten how to write
i want to pack up my things in the little red suitcase i saw at st. vincent de paul's a year ago. maybe in a new suitcase. maybe in my grandmother's. i'd take my laptop- no. i'd take a few notebooks. real cheap ones, not the leather kind everyone is so keen on putting in their hands. i'd buy the spiral kind, 90 cents at the store (the words are all i care about); a dozen black pens. i'd take five dresses from my closet, a few sweaters, all of my skirts. i'd take the t-shirts i have been given over the years, my favorite pair of shorts. i'd collect the stashed letters from lovers and myself and all those post it notes. i'd take my pentax slr and a few rolls of film. maybe some money. a passport. a sun hat, because it is going to be summer where i want to go. a pair of shoes, the only ones; the brown ones i wear all the time, because i only need a pair to get me where i am going. i'd bring a map. an atlas. a little black purse. i'd take the car my father promised me a year ago, as if it
