/can you see, can you see? blind, hands unfolded like petals,
stumbling into my earth, dirt-crusted fingers (crowned in the
world's flesh) smeared over eyelids with spit, elbows arms
collapsing into a muddle of hair, over eyes, grasping, reckless-
can you see, can you see, my child?


/Mouth pursed in a plea, gesticulating
limbs parting the fog, eyes
the size of saucers, wide
in a wish.
