You Are All of Our Own Body
Michael Bagwell

we bury species finger-deep
and become the fidelity of objects

i know you need approximation
but we all halo the sky,
all let it rain a bit

think about things until
they are bullet sized

we stopped at the pop art exhibit
but only saw the medieval armor
and some of the japanese brush paintings

it’s too late now
to join the ritual of care
