Body Residence

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson’s Essays
Abstraction reverses gravity
Mind floats to the clouds
Friction disappears
Fiction hectic manufactures

Guide me again earthward
Nerve ending terminus
Narrative down-going
Physical moment's edge

Senses awash
Sensational normalcy
Lung-borne disintegration
Visceral breath asseveration

Bear's choral solo
Silence yielding attrition
Boundaries blurred
Aristotle deterred

Life in home
Toe to shoulder blade
Fool's paradise denial
Giant intoxication
