Premiere

Text

Knuckles like wrinkled walrus-skin,

lipless smiles of nail grooves

and thumb-throats arced in whale song,

clung to the gunwale

bending the canoe-neck down.

To draw from the trough of a wave

welled so deeply by the wind,

the great backs of the swells

are great, the leathered creatures too.

The fingers beluga white

scream at her father for help,

who raises the paddle-blade

and in his rough, old hunter's hands

and his rough, old hunter's mind,

releases them into the kelp.

 

(Martin Kratz, 2011)
