Abstract

Sara Marie Ortiz Aspect Ratio Aspect ratio. Fissures. Beginning: thousands of feet in the sky high above the frozen earth, quite possibly near Red Lake, the place of his birth and going-back-to. There is a distinct likelihood of my seeing him again. And soon. He still owes me money. And I still owe him something I don't have a name for. We owe one another more than we feel we've the blood for most days, something like an apology for our blood, and memories, and dreams, and our bloody dream memories that we began dreaming before birth; little infinite language of this. Something like the promise of our bones and marrow coming to be enough, after all; just as we are finishing up our last holy work here on the earth, just as we are finally getting the fullest light in our frame, the promise coming to be everything that ever was, is, and will be, in the hearts & minds of our grandchildren, and our grandchildren's grandchildren, if we can just muster the blood, breath, and courage to bring them forth, away from the sharp, icy tundra of our little lasting human terrors. Yes, you and I,
