Words by Elizabeth S. Gilliam Hedgepath
Installation by Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels
On the Virginia Carolina state line I saw a crow
She hopped, warily pecking gas station offerings
We are all feasting on something low
We drove to the ocean and then I realized upon seeing the sea
I'm always different at the edges of the earth
The middle of anything encloses me
I inhabit best when climbing up a cliff, fingers touching the summit ledge
Or standing toes in sand where I can step on the place
where the sea meets touchable land's edge
Am I a creature of extremes?
For though no wanderlust is in my veins
I push the edge and pluck at seams
That crow she could live in arctic or dessert
And fashion a feast of anything
But if there is one thing I've noticed:
My mother she is afraid of everything except for the sea
And I'm afraid of the monsters that live in there
I'm only scared of things that can't hurt me
