Samantha Milowsky

On Foot

 

We were like that in the jungle,

the desert, temperate forest.

Born to follow rivers after ice-flow.

 

Always like we were in the beginning.

By choice or chase.

 

To carry your body and mine

for miles on foot,

at times running for our lives.

 

Where is the tribe, our protector?

 

Skulls warm in sand

like turtle eggs, the sea,

magnetic, waits for them.

Remind me why we can’t be arboreal

again?

 

The air is unforgivably clear.

Mother, the first person

I learned to love

and hate.

 

I’m sorry I weighed so much.
