A body could be poised like a question,
a hand raised upward,
a theorem put forward by two bodies.
It could be a given,
an assumption taken for the sake
of arriving at answers.
Bodies are projectiles flung at things at people at yourself
Words break on my body
and I break into pity,
into words that have me trapped
with no synonyms.
A body folds itself inward like secret letters
it’s swallowed in multiple silences
and calls it freedom
when it takes a shot to its head.
A body is poised like a question;
But why did he do it?
