Air Connections

By Karen Wolf


My upside-down soul floats

through a snow bound field past


barn boards that lean into

river’s jettisoned


bargains between blue gills

and egrets, rock


and moss attachment never

argued or symbiosed until


fossilized. I inhale

air exhaled


by camels, Galapagos

tortoises, Cro


Magnon bafflement. As the earth

breathes, colors fading punctuate


hibernating brown re

born greens, rain


filled clouds that work to

sustain nematodes, elephants and


critical zebra
