January 5*

Map of the Salish Sea & Surrounding Basin, Stefan Freelan, WWU, 2009

to the north:

the unseen flattening
fraser delta

jagged abrupt bulkhead
of bc mountains

and beyond:
grizzly, caribou, greyling

and just a bit further:
white seas, white bears

white fantasy.

    Ah, you touched my heart with this one, Luther, particularly the last two lines, “white seas, white bears/white fantasy,” which reminded me of stories from Haida Guaii.
