9 p.m.
Possum along the fence. Raccoons at the bird feeder. Hooves close but unhearable except to U and the cats, flattened against the screen. We see only the cats. The future will show us the past, eaten and halfeaten. The animals relax into their leaves and blankets, but U and I, we never relax.

rib: a combination of plain and purl stitches producing a ridged, somewhat elastic fabric
Between leaves, thousands of small dots rose on his skin Goose flesh, he named it, and shivered a serpent flowed over my instep into a tree wrapped with ivy displayed itself on the trunk as if for study and in his scales the pattern of knitting revealed itself and the opposite called purl after the color of his belly Ribbing left room for growth of various kinds

ELIZABETH KERLIKOWSKE 
No matter how much you wish they're blue herons 
No matter how much you wish they're blue herons turkey buzzards circle over the tornado damage. Once on the highway playing chicken with your car for carrion, that big one looked you right in the eye. From the gyre of wings, he begins his controlled fall, so cursive from far away but raw close up. His feathers burn off. His body changes shape every few feet, younger and smaller and less done, a fledgling then a nestling caught in brown blankets in your hand where he has come to be born.
