     These are beautiful. Everything is gentle billow and float for these river brides. Viscera don’t even suggest violence to me. They trail & hover like the pale vulnerable little crab might if it felt safe enough to crawl from its shell armor. Serene in their presence as if they were taking river rinse. Or leisurely unfurling out from the fabric to take the pulse of the current, survey surroundings, act as periscope for the shy ghost of the drowned.

More of Pynor’s work over at her site.
