somewhere between arusha and tarangire

Hung out by mud huts on the Serengeti Plain
Surrounding the clock tower
And by the fruit stand along the traffic circle
Walking along the dirt road, slender long bodies, witnessed alive.

Across – aisles on the Avenue, to navigate so delicately between
Still, fat, round, Bodies of clay
Encased by glass walls and resting
Alongside cherubs on canvases, imagined, ordered, interpreted.

And my body, and our bodies
Becoming lost to Africa
Passing stale carcasses rotting on the Plain.

Friction Freedom

 

shindo1

freedom feeling that i almost forgot
then suddenly i’m flying
the mechanics & the philosophy & the physics
are sliced away
the coefficient of friction dwindles with each movement
& i am drifting freely
the world melts away

purity
pure and at mercy
and you know and i know
the forces you exert are out of your own control
and i am subject to the laws of motion
simply matter and mass

those moments
when laws are defied
when suddenly i’m punching out of my weight class
when your forces disintegrate
