I move my hands
in these woods
to find her sex-parts.
 
We discover our sex-parts
make heat
and blue light.
 
We become outlines of ourselves—
 
long scratches
in the sky.
 
We have a daughter
who was never born.
 
She lives in the house
we never built,
 
but in this new light,
you can almost see
its tattered roof.
