My Body Drinks

my body drinks water based liquids and eats nourishment and smokes herbs and petals, buds and stems. my being dances, breathes, and listens. i am in tune and conscious to productive hi’s and stagnant low’s; as they pass through i let the tone in my notes absorb the impact. i receive assistance through all my relations in our work. all-together.

Not in the Body

(my Ta’wiz)
sinking in the river
i remembered
(my Ta’wiz)
sinking
sinking
in the river

this sinking understanding
thousands of lessons
hundreds and hundreds of years
ourstory
has been the story of one time

oh the poets
say as if there was a time
that we all
were like this living together

but this must have not been in the body
it is outside the body
and
it is within the body
as is within the world
as is without the world

oh poets
say that in that time
we all, all of us
were together
together

oh poets
say

but they must not have been speaking about us
as beings with bodies
they must have been talking about
outside the body
inside the body
as is inside the world
as is outside the world
