transparency (20220125)

i see through my reflection
in the bathroom mirror
and think that maybe
the wall behind me
could use a towel rack

having stood up
from throwing a spring
in the trash
an operation requiring
a bend at the waist
my head separates from
my neck
and my opacity melts

i live my life
with this same heart
beating in my chest
this same heart
that couldn’t get enough
oxygenated blood
up and into my fat skull

a single bar or a double bar
breathe in breathe
let the heart catch up
