Fragment from Jen

Jen Crawford, that is. She posted this poetic fragment on the Poetry Espresso list:
It's the dark. we let
our whiskers do the talking

oh — a tunnel through silence! stars! smooth
as baby molerats, and blind, and bucktoothed

we move me to a queen.
and you

I'll touch your silk head
Ms. Crawford is an Australian poet, and I encourage her to add more to this. Nice stuff, what?
