Habeus corpus
unknown

In every step,
 1
destruction and creation,
 2
motion lives and something under your heel
 3
crushes with it. In every breath,
 4
both rise and fall.
 5
 
 
Reflected in the mirror just now:
 6
The flesh of stars and the ghostly
 7
ribs of a cup of coffee.
 8
 
 
Perspective is everything.
 9
I have known the tar of plenty
 10
and the gilt of starvation,
 11
bled on the writ of happiness
 12
to embrace it all.
