Poem

a. six dirty hands, a was-once-blank wall
my mother’s shoes walk themselves
into her palms, left on right right
on left.

b. the sheep hugged the wolf but that
did not change the course.

c. abraham and isaac jesus
and his father

d. the lies were necessary love is
not forever the soft tickle
of butterfly wings in your throat
it is the warmth of a volcano a soft
wind curled in a cyclone.
