Tessemae's Italian salad dressing from Whole Foods—My everyday go-to fave! Click HERE to check out all of their wonderful flavors!
Oh, and by the way, the Italian vinaigrette has zero-calories. That's right, ZERO cal-o-ries! And, it's super yummy. I have a hard time keeping this stuff in the house because I use it on everything...baked potatoes instead of butter, marinade for chicken & beef, and an extra zap of flavor on green beans and other steamed veggies.

deer dance (from rounding the human corners)
when the chill that rises up from the ground is warmed,
the snow is melted
where the small deer slept.
See how the bodies leave their mark.
The snow reveals their paths on the hillsides,
the white overcrossing pathways into the upper meadows
where water comes forth and streams begin.
With a new snow the unseen becomes seen.
Rivers begin this way.
At the deer dance last year,
after the clashing forces of human good and evil,
the men dressed in black,
the human women mourning for what was gone,
the evergreen sprigs carried in a circle
to show the return of spring.
That night, after everything human was resolved,
a young man, the chosen, became the deer.
