November 10th

Sweet, deep, peaceful sleep
Apparently I was tired.

How has this culture so taught us not to know our bodies’ own sensations
that we eat on a schedule or a whim
and sleep as though it is an interruption
and are oblivious to danger
and are practical about love.

Mama Bear shakes her head in wonderment.
Eat salmon,
Eat blueberries,
Drink stream,
