When I was a boy my feet snared sunlight
out of shade
Trees leaved in like libraries
I squirreled, scaled and tongued.
I hovered in their chapters,
inhaled their jokes and scanned their
holy vellum

and later was a mirror and a shroud,
my sacred valleys named and parceled in,
so I became a witch again, as apt to curse
as bless,
scarce, magical, covert and sidelong.

Ash and mask, I leaned with other shades
against shy trees. Our foottracks irked
their ground.
Their silence could not slide within
my shallow caverns.

Scant, squint, quaint, I prayed in canted
spaces;
The scattered sunlight quailed before my words;
the candles ached and quavered in my shade.
