full moon in Taurus: of the body, for the body
reading as the invisible act i “do” in my head
but always is embodied or else i could not hold a book
the book as a dance, as a set of steps and gestures that my fingertips
can hold:
i page, i palm, i point—i
touch my mouth (this is the book too)
then close myself, shelve it away.
like the dance, it is no more and it can never be again. ephemeral.
which i know i should find comforting but which is, instead, for me, disconcerting. out of concert. i did not agree to
this. like so many things.
the body, an object—I object, I say no…there is a blood mystery and although I can be weighed, measured, prodded, counted, discounted—
the Thing is,
I is also a dance
a set of steps,
gestures,
a make-you-feel
and then I’m over.
