Soar Feet

I am not impressed by gravity
all entropy begins and ends
with the arcs of your finger-

nails—nine new galaxies
the chewed hangnail of
your thumb, they free

my feet from

  1. You are once again the master! I have to say I spent quite a long time thinking about the nine other fingers saving the one thumb. This is like a rorschack nonet. What do you see?

  2. I don’t know if I was supposed to find this sexy, but, uh, I did. The half-finished thoughts, the interrupted phrases, the power those fingernails have…anyway, it was very well done. And I appreciate your experimentation with the nonet formatting – it’s neat to see how differently everyone is writing them.

  3. I found this bittersweet undercurrent, about relationships–“begins and ends,” “free,” “lonely.” The framing of “I am not impressed” as well as “gravity” and “Earth.” Hmm, intriguing…

Tell me about it.
