Caroline Harris

the arch the heel the archipelago of toes pressed between pine needles into  

moss the phalanges – proximal middle distal – the sesamoid bones like humps  

of granite rising from the Baltic this is how I make my transition in slips  

over semi-sweetness a subtle frontier when I am used to the Atlantic slap
