Sticks into Streams

yesterday is sun on the back of eyelids
like not holding on
or letting go of thrown sticks
and nothing sticks you down
like stream silt sucking at toe tips.

never wash your feet:
always barefoot.

play like bear cubs
barely old enough to
lose your footing
because of how much you want something.

you don’t need that thing
called believing

in the tooth fairy.

your teeth fall out just the same.
