Later       after the trap’s
been licked clean       after I’ve
nearly forgotten how the bite smelled green
she’ll come through          aflame & rampant      
ready to run it from the top

If the film is silent        does it better
or worse represent the voices
Joan says she hears?        I’m used to it but how 
will she come through       fulgent in low-gear fury
her bitten reply      ask me Saturday

Raise the window
Raise both arms
Pull the armor off           over your bitten head
