But my lips digress

 

at the place I turn a cheek to
between anatomy of hip and certainty
where science and faith untangle

tongues, discover all languages
in that sweeping terrain
each vertebrae a patent

your secrets safe there
my heart folding out of office
in the finest drafting

gender less in ways sculptors see
