Visit Switzerland

Ambling in limbo

illiterate and alien

wary of pregnant pauses —

she drags her shadow

heavy as luggage 

over miles of gravel

leans over ledges 

to air dirty laundry

as insides tumble 

down spiral staircases

shiny white air

burns paper lungs

but there is relief

in the river

cleaving the city:

green glass

 clear to the bottom

and slim swimmers

  slice straight paths 

      alongside swans.
