open the museum inside every letter

Let's Ask the Fox

Let's turn back into the blaze without shovels, let's ask the fox
and the rotunda gods to chase us through another summer—
untree me, shapeshift you, sweetflesh the flesh back into us—
roust the moon into some new patterns. Let's open the museum
inside every letter, every hidden name, and share one chrysalis where
even Apollo and Daphne sleep together to form a different myth.
