Two Hundred Six

Poetry By: juliejew

The body speaks

I am

The aching gut

The arthritic knuckle

The corneal abrasion

And you are

The weight of my skeleton

The strain of flesh

The cartilage in my knees

And I am

The poison marrow

The glacial pulse

The creaking spine

And you are

The breathing

The digesting

The pulsing automation

And I am

The webbed foot

The degenerate tissue

The aural hallucination

And you are

Two Hundred Six bones harder

Five Hundred Twelve ounces heavier

Six Hundred Thirty Nine fibers stronger

Than the space between us.
