From Sara Eliza Johnson:

April 2, 2018

In the forest, the owl releases a boneless cry.
I know the names of things here
and I can hold them.
I hold your hand:
a matryoshka opening deeper
until I can hear your bones
singing into mine,
and feel the moon

as it rolls through you
like a great city before a war
