from "; SONG IS SUBJECTIVE"
; THE EMBODIMENT OF LANGUAGE
By Eileen R. Tabios

 

; the impossibility of bottoming out

; a hug pricked by small, slanted bones

; naked, due to intrusion by a bruise

; softened by the presence of hair

; "these were borrowed gestures"

; the names of children not born, like Alexander

; pearls
