from this view, I see it better
from this perpetual angle of scarred trees
grating to find an answer
blue-white freckles and strawberry blossoms
a horsefly swishing across my face
riddled and pinned on a leaf
wild roses and blackberry bush
in a soft, white crinoline skirt
I don’t know how to write the truth
the green fly on my hand
this is where home is
