On Being Friends

The important part
is to keep up with it
The boardable train
Fishing with an earthworm
in the ocean
Incompatible porn
Committed, curious
A student of biology, big school
house of animal teachers
Slapped on the wrist with tail
Jaguar, too hungry to hunt
Drowned by the heron
lifted away
Eaten someplace quiet
On the rocks
Down the hallway
Until the heron is stretched full
of hair and bone
Holding its gut
Sloshed to sleep by the moon
Her great blue stomach
The sea
