Every little bit of our bodies

*Kristen Shaw by Michael Hessel-Mial


1.


Nietzsche / broken

tiny staircases
tiny structures

Nietzsche / ribs curled

miniscule rips
symmetrical slots

Nietzsche / on top of you

with pins / aroused
to feel moisture
of organic things

Nietzsche / a
broken / maze



2.


men / spilling out of you

press
curves and sharp
incompatible

embarrassed

cover the openings
(cold river / will not leak
again)

naked bodies / colonized
suddenly / damaged


this mind/relieved the ordeal

the sunset/lonely and sad

I move/this territory


by the light / in your mouth



3.


exuberance
children scream

they want to see / a few words

the water
sounds / are men

they want to see / orange skies

not even human
we cannot turn away

they want to see god / open and raised



4.


petals unfurl
colours flash

pressed/crushed
flower mosaic

wounds
infinities

spilled seeds
open windows

we can talk / somewhere
pressed against
the tunnel / by the light



5.


Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

rots in the belly

Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

prick / all veins pull all veins

Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

Every little bit of our bodies

prick

breath / in the belly



catch breath.

you are excavating
your body

I will
bring it close to
the sun

I've owned
the flesh that glues
you / into your body

I've owned
our histories

you are / torn

I wanted / your body
never dead

I / bring you back to
life / torn at the edges

they were never dead
the flesh / that fills machines

you are excavating
carefully / joyfully

you are / taste
you are / Nietzsche
you are / light

you are
you are
you are


years coming

un-finished

un-done
