there’s a strong math to describe it, but it’s impossible to by Taylor Eagan conceptualize I'd hate to say I told you so, but there's an appetite for what would do: the laundry, dishes, the windshield wiper fluid, walking home from the bridge, barnacles on the pilings, shadows of the buoys, the knots and rings in the curio cabinet wood, the china, reflection of the china, cave of ribs, elephants tusks, the marrow, a rope ladder out the second story window, a draft in pencil, or cold through the blinds, the piracy, a hard shape in the peripheral, a shape of a crushed beer can, the floor of a car in park or the benches next to it, splintered and warped at the bolts. ! ! ! ! ! The solar system ingested whole ! ! ! ! scrapes its way down the esophagus, ! ! ! ! reheated. I told you it was better that way, didn't I? Then there are the negative spaces, Godspeeds, calloused hands, Eros, apartheid -all this loud music, added up to be things we haven't started to miss.

In My Hands

by Nancy Scott
