for diane
.....Mother Geis
...................................................... stephanie pope

It was a goose
singly and signed

and although
mated for life

where children
come and go

it was through so
many little deaths

its font released
& how

just now
it flew into the no

into the no
it leapt

into the no
it flew

it left no
molt

no feather
where

it left  a verb
tense

shot like
an arrow

laid in geis
left in tracks

overcoming
over…coming

goose vane
