Mind/Body Experiment

I will not scream, “Tuna!”

My mind walks north

into the sticks.

My planet is yet

habitable. Miracles

happen involving the speech

of animals. A man

is found wedged in a cocoon

of straw and ice.

He walks away unharmed.

A moose charges by

kicking up huge plumes

of snow. When I nap

I can hear my body

whimpering with no

prompting from my mind.

The body dreams

about shooting pool

in a cement cave

where salamanders

curl in suspended


near a drain.
