Gunwale  

An oar will not help
when the water wakes—
anchor through the floor,
closed fist on the siderai

Petal Fold  

The surgeon knows all the parts of the brain but he does not know his patient’s dreams.
–Richard Selzer

The blade steps
through the door of her abdomen,
spills across the lake—
paper wings,
the splayed ribs of a pine boat.

Mountain Fold 

We culled the nettle from her lung—
she flew,
a red kite rowing a pleat of light,
unthreaded eye.
