“Cozy Ice Cave”
40″ x 30″ 3000.
Who would have thought ice could make a cozy place to sleep? All that fur and muscle and power contained and at rest.
She is half asleep. Eyelids doing pushups.
Each muscle releases.
above her arctic nest.
Adrift in furry warmth,
a secret cave of ice and snow.
Ocean salty aromas promise refreshment
but she is no longer listening.
