James Grinwis – Inupiat

James Grinwis


Stinkfish. Seal flipper.
What have you

north of you.
Beside one margin loss,

a whale basking
like a spring tripped

in some kind of mechanical accident
between naturalized service devices.

Not to say
things are normal or at all close

to those who run
kinless across the fields,

flicking the last drops of sun from the sky.
Though, while in transit,

things will glitter.
