Family Matters

when the deer don't come to die
the women send their husbands
to copulate with deer-wives
in hopes to generate a family
the worth of which is death;

consumption into and toward
the spirit-family.

Cloud Hidden

Alone now,
I imagine they smile:

the mountains
lost in snow

Blood Mysteries

what is man without wonder
for the blood mysteries?
blood-flow, blood-form, blood-milk

expert blood
vessel overflowing

he goes lives without knowing
his own life-form and dies how many times
under assumptions of power

i know, i listen and i've heard
its pulsing below my own heart

the darkening of the falling mind
tastes just like blood in snow


... The Great Mother, the Great Round, the Great Container, tends to hold fast to everything that springs from it and to surround it like an eternal substance. Everything born of it belongs to it and remains subject to it; and even if the individual becomes independent, the Great Mother relativizes this independence into a nonessential variant of her own perpetual being.

Enchantments Prism'd Dew

o waves of enchantment!
caught upon horizons
with the strangest light

just how do i become
a winter-sleeper?

o what a
wide way 

Skyline to the Sea
