Snow Mountains


A bird flies up from the mountain

larger than the mountain

and down

heart on the mountain


two brown glaciers

of feathers melting

water talk

you are water
I’m water
we’re all water in different containers
that’s why it’s so easy to meet
someday we’ll evaporate together

but even after the water’s gone
we’ll probably point out to the containers
and say, “that’s me there, that one.”
we’re container minders
