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
