July 8*

snow spider

the aeolian drifters—
spiders, gnats, the strong of wing
light of body
rise from the island
blow to the west on
upswirl of storm
alighting lightly on
the snow fields, the glaciers
on mt baker
          all the while we recieve
          immigrants from
          orcas and vancouver islands
