my earth is connections of blood, bodies connected by blood of blood of earth. my earth just a river, my body just a wash. my family of stones smoothing over time, rounding into globes, softening into dirt into earth, my earth.
my family on the riverbed, on a current pushed by melt. my family of minerals steeped in an earth. my family of bones of stones of water of dirt. my family an earth in its parts.
