IN THE FLESH
(3/28/17)

whatever
magic
a body holds
works mainly
from a distance

the face

the tone

the curves

seem perfect
in print

on the
screen

across
the street

across
the room

up close
however

brow
to brow

belly
to belly

we see
the bumps

the blemishes

hear the sounds

smell the odors

they're only
another human

and a
little bit
disgusting

just like
us
