In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

41 From the Bath I settle my buoyant body in the depths, gaze at the sky’s colorless wash, the tops of trees in the window, leaves twisting over and under like a Thai dancer’s hands. My cat’s paws measure the air as she sews herself to sleep. A hawk croaks its clacking call. I float to that first home, all the world a private ocean, before the body’s cells left water for land. In a smear of white a bird settles on the dead branch of a tree, wings arranging themselves into clouds. There will come a time when I will forget my cat, the hawk’s prey thumping my window, when I will swim in a sea with no horizons. Young_FinalTextRev.indb 41 7/22/19 1:00 PM ...
