In Minnesota during the silver season
she married a frozen swimming pool
masquerading as a Great Lake.

Some months later her blotch
of a daughter will skate upon the glass display
of ten thousand open-eyed corpses.

Crawling out from under a prophecy
is like the five room puzzle,
an impossible tangle of fishing line.
