Sam is a recently arrived orangeman with a taste for birds and small rodents, and a leper’s double bell of moral pariahdom to match.

This orangeman’s
newly discovered
traditional route

takes you
in his stride
starting from scratch

at the foot of the bed,
and gingerly step
by step proceeds

by the crook of your hip
to the undulating
bronco he rides

on a breast-bone perch.
He wants your breath
and will have it.

Breathe. Breathe in.
Take it. Give it.
