In a wide, white room, I've been refusing to cooperate
It's true

But yesterday, Monday, I spent the morning logging in deer-kill data
At the fish hatchery

A single orange leaf floats over the ice-blue pond . . .

A little fur the color of rust
Coming away bright on my fingers—the animals' lips pried
Making them look as if they may begin screaming
