Skagit Flats

Skagit Flats


Rows of corn

lifting small wings

in June

like cormorant


on rocks in the estuary


How some birds

fly underwater



cursive shapes


I miss our lunches

on that river

the lacquered wood, nautical décor


How we escaped a department

of nudists

and saw one another molting

shedding one way of lifting into the world

for another


Driving through

the first humidity

in June

like flying
