written by joshua marcus


Pull your body outwards from the magnets
Walk until your legs cease or your mind is left alone
Then what? Run

Go into the place you seldom go
Head into the darkness and push through the noise
Unclothed, unformed

You only work with what you have

Troll desert your bridge post
Send your body reeling you rot in your comfort zone
And lo and behold, crow

Poles- true north
Somewhere there's another eating all that I cast off
When's their winter come? Our equinox

Who can see the moment my breath ends
I can feel the sweat slat mask me in
You can smell your scent on rare occasions
We can taste the tension on our skin

You only work with what you have
Would you recognize a grander plan?
When would you adjust your hardened hat?
If you only work with what you have
