Dream Journal of the Arctic Fox

Above, the flying machine / wing tracks span between rowan and birch /
maintaining territory / new expansion /
the steel-trap beak a golden ratio curving into my nape

running, the snow’s metallic squelch / the air
a biting slobber of fermented shark / running
out     of     fur
                   and land.

ii

on volcanic seamounts
in the bioluminescence of the bone-house

*scale worms fight for the sky candle*

shimmering scales
of sequined armor
hang, ragged
& torn
like Grendel’s arm

as ancient mariners
dig through root cellars
blind as bats.

*is this a saga?

iii

your transparent skull
giant eye cast heavenward
suckers, tips, suction
/~~~~~~~
bummock keel the bruised dregs.

Kraken icebergs calved from glaciers leave melting footprints on the sea.

iv

My runic body casts no shadow / Have I outfoxed the sun?
