"Prudence Wolverine"

celebrity clientele
implacably smoke
in Attabar Teru i wander

red sand cliffs
small plateaux · scattered ponds seen through an alley
littered with plastic bags along the fence edge

shell craters
on the way to the dumpster
i encounter crabs

marching in single file · bright orange
carrying cardboard
cartons of name-brand icebergs

Gender-neutral pronouns. (Once upon a time, i devised ze, zer, zem for this.) Also, "...a quarter of the world's languages have some type of grammatical evidentiality." I know that's true of Lojban!
