One of Habecker’s poems:

When weasels are out
after the first snowfall of the year
the elders tell me to walk with my mouth
shut tightly against the rivering wind
or the weasel, an opportunist,
will launch into the current’s lift
toward my dark throat
and tunnel my belly,
hallowing through the meat of me
along the canal to my navel and out
again into the cold blue world of ice
slowly moving toward us.
