A Boa From Samoa - Poem by Isabelle Cooper

Bright as disaster
The morning sky
Above the burnished lake
Leaned close
As though to swallow
Not just one thing
But all-

Held still-
For one small signal waiting
To spread its length, slip down
The rope of day
And fold into itself
The soft and delicate bones of earth
