Gazelle in the House
A gazelle in the house means tender, breaking silence. An approach calibrating hesitation. Something held out in the hand. Something bitter, exactly toward a gazelle. You will bring things forward that are not of your world. You will push things back that seemed massive, fundamental—packed away, out of the path of a gazelle. Rooms must be cleared for the strands of her shadow, a thin frame on white walls. Let a gazelle determine it all. Enclosure means trespass. What looks open is. No thoughtless clarity. No space she cannot step into, butt to the width of her animal need. She will stray. Like a clock, her hooves mark crooked shifts on your floor. Her ears quake like tuned strings.
