So it came time

for me to cede myself

and I chose

the wind

to be delivered to

 

The wind was glad

and said it needed all

the body

it could get

to show its motions with

 

and wanted to know

willingly as I hoped it would

if it could do

something in return

to show its gratitude

 

When the tree of my bones

rises from the skin I said

come and whirlwinding

stroll my dust

around the plain

 

so I can see

how the ocotillo does

and how saguaro-wren is

and when you fall

with evening

 

fall with me here

where we can watch

the closing up of day

and think how morning breaks
