this buried foalit is not real

the bed-sheet I usedto bury it

I pretend is immortalI pretend this

see the navel of this riveris beautiful

these eyes are notblinking

I pretend to carvethrough

this cataract of iceto fill [End Page 225]

the inward caveof the mouth

see the dirt of thesehands

the wince of theseroots [End Page 226]
