Memories of HER Descent


“She is not especially neat or clean”

M.J. left those words
scrawled on the radiator, where she’d found them.

She did not clean them off with the others.

She knew they had been written about her.

These had been her Mother’s quarters, after all and these
words were her legacy.

South, Towards Fargo

Chuntao dipped her bottle into the slow moving water
and thought about her journey.

she had crossed
the Bering Landbridge
through Alaska to Canada and now; Lake Winnipeg.

She puzzled over the old names on her ancient map.
