randi george

Debussy

1.

Robin Laurel and reed, harmonium

Robin Cedar in sleep, I’m home again Robin Red wooden spine and veins of phloem

Robin Chlorophyll mind, the holly frond Frogs Io— Flies Daphne— Fox Syrinx— North Wind Eternally running—

Frogs Lolita— Flies Echo— Fox River aids the turning Kits River reeds West Wind The part you never see—after

2.

Fox Floating in the lake West Wind The hapless women of myth

Fox The hide’s red-orange casing Kits Hide red West Wind Mouths becoming bark

Fox Barely keeps my body’s Kits Red my casing
