my sagging backside
has found true south
a magnetic polarity
that cannot be denied


or waved away in disbelief
here all facts are self evident
medicine wanders
a nomad’s hessian philosophy


honest as breaking glass
gravity in landscape
drags petals from stalks
allows hover in falling


lingering effervescence
so hungry in passing
arranges this nimble parasol
to shade an eventual rise
