Body and Soul
Where do you think the soul is?
the kind that contains one item—
Is it crumpled up behind the heart?
is it wrapped around the balls, is it damp
The body isn’t the house.
is the soul up late in the kitchen, sleepless,
is it tired of TV,
The body has no thoughts.
and is still dry.
sweats and weeps—
gets so quiet
scratching like something trapped
and trying to get out,
