The Subtle Body

For the past year, I have meticulously
Plotted the map of my emotions all along
My body. We take feeling from ether and
Turn it into the physical. My heart hurts.
My head is heavy. My stomach flips and
I feel buoyant, yet I have never left the
Soft touch of the ground beneath my feet.
I want either to fly away, grow smaller, like
A balloon in the blue sky – on it’s way to
Outer space and later destruction. Or I want
These sponges of lawn to relax, release and
Invite me into the caverns of inner earth,
Plucking the seedlings of love from my
Body. Find peace in mossy emotion,
Overgrowth, accept accept accept.
