she’s so quiet down there

in the stars on the surface

of the water in the well

awfully peaceful down there

like how


mom’s so peaceful now

with the dirt on the lawn

fingers thrust into the soil

listening to the attendants

figuring out the flavors


mother earth is in a constant state of apocalypse

she said to me

a persistent revelation

because just beyond the pale blue halo of earth’s hips


the stars and dark extend forever

as if space were water around the head

of a woman drowning in a well
