Dec 2017
my heart is made up of a thousand lakes
scraped into the earth three million years ago

my body was made by glacier movements
and oceans tearing away my topsoil

my heart is tall with jack-pines and spruce
my hair is wild, nested with song birds

my lips painted pink with bright sunsets
and sometimes i am enveloped by this world

and other times it is what makes me
feel as alive as i do right now
