The dream reoccurs. And curdles. Earth cracking
into green lightning. Water everywhere (floor-
boards coming undone). What to take and what
to lose? Colorblind hummingbirds in my suitcase.
Letter with laughter inside. The Bible verse: And
behold, I myself am bringing flood waters on the
earth…The whole house splitting open. What else?
Take the windows. Take the door. Enter the mud
and the water together. Enter the breathing ghost.
The breath of God.
