dance or

Each deformed cub is a deity
in an obscure pantheon.
Praising vociferous chasms and dens,
black herons dance on dirty pillows,
but the dead don’t remember the songs
they should smash against the void,
mired in the tresses of stagnant water
and strands of stone clouds
while dragonflies eat away at their fingers.
