Favorite Quote:
I don't know where I'm going but I promise it won't be boring." -David Bowie


dry, gritty calcium molds
stretch a muscle
one way
one way only

a worn ligament will anticipate
its fellow acrobat catches
an ankle

without the body’s circus
gravity slings your arm
limp to cement ribs

that ghost of gymnast’s silk ribbon
shimmers in my eye
and spins through my veins

Went to a flute camp. Oddly enough, inspired not by music but by a workshop on anatomy and breathing.
