The Body
The body knows what?
how to ovulate, masturbate, cry
how do decorate itself
in tattoos and eye shadow
how to breakout
breakdown and
break in a new love

The body is smart
stupid, decrepit
culprit of desire

The body is essentially
yours for the time being
until it is swept away
by eons of dust and dreams

The body is
all knowing, all forgiving
memory of itself
mirrored back by old photos

The body is
self-hating self-loathing
over eating vessel of bewilderment
under the sublime control of grey matter

The body is yours
love it,hate it, enjoy it,
it is the only one we get
at least in this lifetime
