S paints in the crust of salt with a finger of spit.
T wheels the last piano onto the fire.
P throws stones at a rock.
The afternoon turns over in its sleep,
C trades her kingfisher skull for
a tinned peach. M traps air in a screw-
top jar. F plants the last of his teeth.
L pulls up the ladder,
Secures the hatch.
