Not Very Hungry

"Rim-Drift," 2014, by Elizabeth Gilfilen

Not Very Hungry

Rocky outcropping you are
the bright twin of the cave

Your mind wants to clamber over all places
to own these places

You want to eat but feel no hunger
Cave can wait until it is right

The cave she dreams and swoons
over images she invents

She tosses them out into the dark
like sonar She can hear the world’s clock
