In-a-would-be-drowned city, what one girl sawof grief was the war-lost father and a baby brother laid out like expansesof water we, even as we stand on far shores, must cross.
And the girl and M and you and I are blood-bound.It is sassy to say, “I see”; sassier to say, “I see you”;sassiest to say, “I see you looking at me,” to call outwhat we are looking for.

from Rays of the Shadow
There are two words: leaf and reflection. We could allparlay via these words and grow conversation.Lights find their end in waves as ocean flowers toland under rain. Amorphous water, when will youtake shape and line? Like life in a like square. Withinit is the already seen and said. Reflect sayswater and leaf says light. Ardent over the land.
