Three AM

Current sensation,
Behavior in waves—
We’re more embodied
Than we are bodies,
More experience

Tangled than packaged,
We can’t separate.
We’ll move, sense, and say

To write of bodies,
To write out bodies
Embodied as words,
To break the taboos
Against speaking flesh

Brings liberation
Only in language,
Only for language,
Which makes dolls of flesh
For words to play in.

Sensing continues.
Behavior moves on.
The dolls on the shore
Are sticks in the waves,
Sticks scattered, more waves.
