Culling


‘proceed by moonsight, dreamstinct’
                                                  – Alice Oswald

Sniff the moonlight out from under the door. Follow
with hand and mouth, your feet must be the first
thing you leave behind. Drop
hair, breast cup, hipbone to mark the way.
You will be nothing but reaction when you reach.
Follow the scent of your blood home. Kidney,
thigh, ankle will climb back into your body.
You will not remember in the morning.
At night, the moon will be full.
