Anatomy

Anatomy

Rocker hip, unstable, loose joint

scarred over, something tight from

the jaw clench to the pelvis. Petrifying

timber, I now lean to the left.

Remembering

Before derailleurs: symmetry and strong legs

to hilltops and down a somersault spine 

summer grass arms that

held cartwheels, left and right palmed

Discipline

Clenching, loosing, lifting work

against the slumping tight string

pull of of a pouch collapse of soft leather

around the gut, the pearl

Just walking

Watching my shadow turn around me

a sunstone, bones to water. I dream

a swimmer, slow and languorous

Adrift.

 

*Two poems in one day to play catch up for the month.
