stilted

 

standing in stilts over the fire

(wooden stilts)

 

sleeping in stilts over waiting 

water (paper stilts)

 

heating sleep up in prep

for a slide down (throat 

stilts) unoared

 

lying down in stilts

telling truth to 

the horizon (still stilts)

who knows it 

 

kneeling in stilts

to express how the best

is broken (stilts 

 

of mirror wandering off

into god 

would know what

 

if knowing were anything in

this land
