bear bones

art and poetry from British Columbia, Canada artist Oiseau: in the poet's room


Paul is going to Peru and I am walking
on the mudflats, neutral, judiciously
stepping from sand to October
water and back, rather blank
at heart, remarking on the traces

the way you know a beaver has been:
odd constructions on the verges, linked
toothings, pale and sappy gouges

land-marks of an airtight and flatfooted

song of the misdressed

the carver

this spring's channels
