Animal Languages

Chase Twichell

 

In snow, all tracks

 - animal and human –

speak to one another,

 

a long conversation that keeps breaking off

then starting up again.

 

I want to read those pages

instead of the kind

made of human words.

 

I want to write in the language of those

who have been to that place before me.
