From -21 to 56 in a week

Water is running down the slope of the hill toward the house, serpentine-like, under the snow, appearing like the silvery stretchmarks across the flesh of a pregnant mother.

“Flood warnings,” they say, and sometimes delivery leads to a flood, like my cousin’s did, and she almost died, right there in the hospital, because the bleeding was on the inside, and they already had the baby.

How so are we, like #45, grabbing what we want while disregarding the sovereignty of the life-giver… earth, water, air, woman, yoni, breast.
