RendezvousRime dampens leaf crackle;your boots lift peppered scent.Hunt camp disappears behindcedar bog.Squat. Touch fungus. Listen.Otherfootsteps pause and proceed,pause and advance andthrough breathing balsamthrusts midnight wolf, eyesintrepid suns,nose lifted to strange reek.Three strides apart;you ingest each other.Raven calls out.But wolf ears—steepmountains—focusonly on mystery.Onyx lips open to glacier grin.Ferned plume of tailspins past.Ancient air pours through youand you sink likerain into the duff.Wait. Lichened greenstoneon trembling tongue.Knowledge, basaltic,rises along your backbone.Footsteps circle around,returning.Deep forest dark together,Gold fever curious.Exchange breaths, learning.
