      What the Light Teaches

      "I break open stars and find nothing and again nothing, and then a
      word in a foreign tongue." --Elisabeth Borcher



      I
      Countless times this river has been bruised by our bodies;
      liquid fossils of light.

      We shed our ghost skins in the current;
      then climb the bank, heavy and human.

      The river is a loose tongue,
      a folk song. At night we go down to listen.
      Stars like sparks from a bonfire.
      We take off what we are,
      and step into the moon.
