Anatomy Practical

Let me make angles across your body
Knee bent, tibia across fibula
Patella precariously close to groin
Kneading thigh playfully
Humerus diagonally across abdomen
Giggling into your shoulder
Encircled in your arms
Long bones, long sighs
Let my ulna cross your heart
And hope to die
Radius completed by your own
Tucked over mine
Phalanges tangled in your hair
Pulling at the roots of thoughts
I can’t identify

  1. This is one of the most unique poems I’ve read in a long while, I just had to respond. Your blog makes me want to archive all of my old pieces in a format like this.

    I’ve got most of my stuff on Deviant, do you have one?
