Magdalena Ball #36: Breastbeat


Normally shy
conciliatory even when right

the woman is bird her wings
take the air in slow slices

burns rubber into wine
swaps soft hands for hard graft

it’s an easy trade

distortion turns my head
I’d tell you more but

I don’t know what this means
what it is to mean

a small break in the pattern
you might miss, a diaspora

marching along time’s rough edge
concurrent media streams

a distraction from all those lives, all moving
and when you strip away the clever

twist of words nothing makes any sense
except compassion
