shadows, spirit, hey/

“Written tradition talks of three kinds of gazzi: One, usually a bird, accompanies the noaidi on journeys to the upper world; the second, usually a four-legged wild animal, accompanies the noaidi on journeys in this world, also called the middle world; the third, a fish, a snake, a lizard, or some other animal that can live underwater or underground, accompanies the noaidi in the lower world”

Biret Maret Kallio, “Noaidi”
everything soul
threshold liminal
here, a crossing
here, we wending
blending
mending broken
scars
i shades kiss
touch blood
& sky calling
burning oil into
ghost-danced night
