Sinks of Gandy


Just off the Dry Fork Road
a cave
offers cover from a storm

I can’t see to see

But the dark

Anything can happen
in the dark

Life in the sea-bottom sulfide
of hydrothermal vents

an upstream surge of semen
toward the fallopian tubes

the bank where the last elk
was killed

The last


::

Here

I knew that we would
all disappear
one way or another

A sleeping secret
tucked in my brain

like an aneurism

Little black moth
waiting to take wing
