    World, turn all you want to,
    faster even. I’ve come to like the way the breeze feels
    as it rips me limb from limb.

    I’ve been walking for a long time,
    and it hasn’t made me smarter or faster

    Maybe not now, maybe not tomorrow,
    but this stubborn monster-girl, gone all wrong
    with the river’s sledge, is not
    giving in to your one-way-ness.

    I’m chock-full of bad ideas today,
    my foul mouth worthy of a good kick.

    The song in my head has whiskey in it,
    and a back porch full of rusted nails in mason jars.
    It sounds nothing like the song in your head.
    In fact, that’s the chorus.

    Dive under, dive under,
    bristle and thunder.

    (Small brilliant hole in the dark, let me out.)

    Come Blue Night, come Quick and Electric.

    She is wearing her changeable season, she is shedding light like feathers.

    She says not to put the cart before the horse—
    the heart before the course.

    But when she moves, so much light escapes.

    I’m making
    a list of all the things in my mouth. Bees,
    and bee stings, hope.

    I’m sorry that I could not stay. Your name was too big for me,
    twice my age—you were still running faster than water.

    I want the big bite, one
    restless, tooth-filled mouth to take me down.

    (Sharks are listening right now, I’m sending out signals.)
    I’m dreaming of them. I’m wrapping my arms
    around their cold, gray, magnificent bodies.

    Sharks are fish, just fish with a rubbery cartilage
    and a mind for troublemaking—stirring things up.

    Go bury
    your head in the wasted weeds
    so you can hear the beating
    deepen, the blazing suddenness
    of a wound overcome by wonder.

    You’re a persistent fish swimming
    the same surviving river, skinless
    and unhinged by a year of bad weather.

    There are times when I suppose we’re supposed to rail against our lot,
    other times, the moon and sun are siblings.

    I birthed myself into an animal being.

    She’s not as dumb as she looks
    though she’s falling headfirst into
    the eternal misunderstanding
    that trains don’t stop.
