Submerged

A red-backed salamander
     I found twirled in dust
                     trapped
                                 writhing
                     hanging  &
                                 suspended
                                     [ in my hair ]
            reminded me/
                     As I submerged it
       some phoenix////
           need assistance

rising
                                               from the ashes
