MATINS

 

 

 

Five steps beyond the dangerous

curtainfall of morning

your body rises up

a chord

a ringing,

resonating

geometry of sound

or waves in symmetries of song

the air takes shape

a bell tolling

metal on engineered metal

my fibers vibrating in sympathy

my nerves

my spine, my thighs
