Shrink wrapped earth and night
the black eyes of a golden dog
hip bone's celestial bridges
keys that wink in the net's bottom
slats of oiled wood across the hooded moon
ledges of painted salt cliffs
ebbing and sparking pine bark walls
the caked earth of drum hands
throbbing from an ancient cave
hot webs of gum trees
interlacing broad banded leaves.

A minnow in forehead iris
darting between scorched brows.
