newborn . . .
togo song (veasz)
as your body tenses
seek heat . . .
locked . . .
of my chest . . .
Composed for a new life . . . posted yesterday
here . . . different title, slightly different wording . . .
“togo” is the Owens Valley Paiute term for “father of my mother” or “my mother’s father“; if the child had been my son’s, I would be the child’s “cuh nu” . . .
