be fell

a dozen grappling insects    
work on small kingdoms    
  around their earth, arranging    
  her morning skirts into lichens—  
breathing least with darkness    
  as she-moths among stars;    
white seeds vanished in fire-light  
   
I tenderly slept, heard nothing    
  but water; remembered thoughts—     
the trees, perfect branches    
  birds by my bed; night pockets  
  took me – before something dark    
floated between luminous    
rose and river stone—   
   
at times, they    
  — all so full of doom—    
who had never thought:  
   
                     Do better—  
   
 fell back.
