Circa 2015

To My Poet,

I am a cursive body
running laps on your notepad
telling you the story
of how we first met.

A Love Letter

Within my body, beneath the bones

a wildness thrives -

A mess of tangled vines

climbs my ribs

in search of something Human.

You sent me

on an errand into the wilderness -

I went to hunt
