Don't look at your hands while juggling;
they should appear blurred, gesticulating skyward
as if rearranging the heavens. The Pleiades constellation
disappears the longer you stare.

I have been told to study my hands in the daytime;
Memorize their warmth, arrange each finger's position.
In my dream they flicker, drained of color and temperature,
but if I hold them steady they follow me through the night.

I grow accustomed to the habits of a body.
The lower lip bitten in concentration, the eager feet.
When I squint, shadows under his chin, nose, and brow
separate from three planes of light: forehead
like a plum freshly polished by shirt-sleeve,
and two cheeks singing under a lamp.

Behind eyelids, I see my hands
on the concave plane below his ribs,
imprinted in reverse color like the after-image
of a bulb. In the body's absence, the vision of skin
pulses and fades.

We enter the salt marsh with fingers crossed
for flicker feathers and boletes.
The hillside provide bones: a clean spine, intact,
a doe skull with a green map etched on her temples
like pathways on a molded topographic globe.
We lose our shoes to the bowels of the pickleweed carpet,
one breathing, gurgling mass of beaded glasswort,
sandfire, little red-tipped fingers clutching digested crabs
the size of spiders, whose sun-bleached exo-skeletons
glimmer against the dull estero palate.
A chorus of marbled godwits chant
kow-eto kow-eto as they lift collectively into the fog.
The flag woven of their wings pulses a few beats and fades.
