The Flood of MathisTo Travis Catsull's previous piece
Mathis Answers

Go to sleep
& I'll untangle your fingers
from the ribs of your wings  
falling in two, slowly to
the pillow.

A bird nests
in water socks
hanging from a powerline
and I took the novel
you wrote
and tossed it 
in the water.

I tossed most of your things
in the water
during the flood.
