to the Georgia Gym Dogs
The human body is a sieve
long after fractions of seconds have marked the place
you continue to press yourself through it
What of its consequences
this philosophy of foreshortened torso and stunted blood
without which all would fail
Was ever this object only
ever destined to break the space of the world apart
not somehow essentially tautological?
You have taught me what
and where movement frames the point of the hinge
and the radius of muscle completes us.
