Skagit Flats

Skagit Flats

 

Rows of corn

lifting small wings

in June

like cormorant

drying

on rocks in the estuary

 

How some birds

fly underwater

 

Unreadable

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

underwater
