"all night i stretched my arms across
him, rivers of blood, the dark woods, singing
with all my skin and bone: “please keep him safe.
let him lay his head on my chest and we will be
like sailors, swimming in the sound of it, dashed
to pieces.” makes a cathedral, him pressing against
me, his lips at my neck, and yes, i do believe
his mouth is heaven,
his kisses falling over me like stars."

Rare Ice Disks
Although extremely rare, ice disks, also known as ice circles, do indeed appear naturally from time to time when conditions are perfect. Above are a few examples of people who have been lucky enough to stumble onto one while holding a camera.
Ice discs form on the outer bends in a river where the accelerating water creates a force called ‘rotational shear’, which breaks off a chunk of ice and twists it around. As the disc rotates, it grinds against surrounding ice — smoothing into a circle. A relatively uncommon phenomenon, one of the earliest recordings is of a slowly revolving disc was spotted on the Mianus River and reported in a 1895 edition of Scientific American.
