Fossils in our bed, furcula
in throat, splayed a drowning
lest we know; ancient hibernations

anamnesis ribcaged
rigor mortis yawning; poisoned waves
beneath the creel and sects of
our darkened sleep

on triptych plains; a fear of water
and people; the surf rattles
in damp winter.

pet virus
drunk, jumps on each leg
like around the skull
of a tree; we choke
on wishbones, we can’t outlast.
