Hating Symbols; Brain Noah



My son: "I hate symbols and all they stand for."





fingers the antlers of hands
hands the breasts of arms
arms the voice of shoulders
shoulders the crown of the torso
torso the meat between head and legs
several top hats inside organs
eyes the doves of skull
returning always with news of floods’ end
of things washed away
brain Noah speaks to each paired body thing
says
‘hunch was right.’
