Slough

we are children of ma fatly sitting
on her smile at our hands passing
how they were grubby below nails

it is she who bore us at new dawn
persisted with us in hills and moon
in a sky of white words like clouds

it is she who will change our skins
a slough we turn over to her rocks
so it will announce we once lived.
