First Line: The neat sky was tall, full of sliding birds
Subject(s): Seattle, Washington


The neat sky was tall, full of sliding birds.
I was sunk low in the wet trees,
surrounded
by brown grass and butterflies.
I had no castle to look at.
I was out of my mind.
Without tenderness, I was out
of breath. In my memory
the city continued to tease.
