how i converse

April 16, 2014

skip the abcs
          impressions flatten smooth
across the pond
          letters fodder for turtles

words for you
          pottery the clay
sculpted by fingers
          my face the kiln

stories the totem pole
          I carved stacks
the day I met you
          in the distance

another signer another
          expressionist
actor of literary concrete
          linked by air between

the abstract precise
          i point point
this this against
          my hand

a bottom that rhymes
          in scattered stones
flung wild bones
          fingers; THIS

title: how i converse ; haley mcbride
(for the first National American Sign Langauge Day : April 15, 2014)
