About the Author

To my mother, Candy,
who taught me that love is the best part of any story

QUESTION
Body my house

when you are fallen
Where will I sleep

What will I hunt
Where can I go
without my mount

without roof or door
and wind for an eye
with cloud for a shift
how will I hide?

–May Swenson
