body parts

each cell
fiber
organ
vein
bone
and the rest of it
contain
the sum
of my years

all have suffered
mightily
from skin
to inner core
all have
experienced
various modes
of abuse
including
day to day
wear
and warfare

my hope is that
when its time
to shut down
everything will
choreograph at once
a perfect dance
of ease and
somatic
timing
sending me off
to the next

About lindalou5150

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
