I’m ready now.
I’m awake. I’m clean.
I’ve turned off all the machines.
Everything is still here.
The clock has stopped and there’s not a sound.


(the sound of fluttering wings)
So. You’ve come.
Yes. Good.
I knew you would.
I heard you singing before I was born.
Yesterday you were sounds in water
Tomorrow sounds in the trees
I know you now –
I hear who you are
Grandmother Crow –
Great-grandfather Swallow.
