Verge 2013: Becoming


Broede Carmody

bath water pools

in your lap,

afternoon unravelling

at the corners.

the paintings that hang

unfinished in your

mind are a kind of fingerprint.

burnt sienna scuffs your cuticles.

on lazy afternoons I rescue

insects from

watery deaths:

bees that won’t live to

pollinate again.

night blankets

our limbs and I dream

of crinkled leaves between my toes,

lungs full of river water.
