NaPoWriMo Day 6


I have divided from the mind
and entered into
my own body
and no longer see the new
stretch marks on my hips
or feel the unaccustomed tightness
of my old jeans
or poke at the cellulite
that emerged last year
or overwash the acne
because that is all invisible
from this perspective

I'm surrounded by
each developed muscle
compressed within my own power
and my heart
beats beats beats
without complaint
and my synapses
fire fire fire
without vacation
and my tendons
stretch in triumph
for now I have looked
and lived
and loved
beneath the surface
