01. Words sang to me. Um. Er. God named me O and sed, take, read. Me, a smal gerl. Readeng and readeng. Words swarmed. Anemals grew names.
02. Anemals alowed me among anemals. Lemurs, deer, dogs, rams, a sow, an emu. Ewes gnawed on a weed. Wrens, owls, and bees swarmed. Wales swam on a dew bead.
03. I gleamed games, lobed orbs, rode wrens, rowed under a drowned garden, saw a nude angel sewing words on dew. Songs lured me on. I read an ogre manuel and learned an angel’s brag.
