CHILDHOOD, REMEMBERED

as a girl 
she could turn into a river.

when she wanted to get away from here
and go there, she only had to lay down

and lean into the easiest route. 
the going and arriving happened all at once — 

she was always tumbling down rocks and cliffs
beneath the slant of the sun at the same time as she

pooled, still as a mountain, at the place she never, ever
finished going to.
