James Bradley – WINTERING

All this. It seemed such an awful tangle
bone and organ
spit
and sometimes muscle.
Always muscle.

Then all July we play Leonardo
peel back skin

mapping out movement
sinew over fibre
layering like flowers or
mecanno
across her back.

 

Learning this geography as intimate
we couple
Eskimo in the dark
riding out ten months of winter.
