ATTACHMENT



ATTACHMENT

today the car
yesterday the road

today the mailbox
yesterday the mailman

shoulders falling like snow
shh

if you look closely
I have a powerful and significant body

a centaur or a mermaid
six of one, half a dozen of the other

the horizon scalloped like crazy
out there beyond the boats

yesterday the horse
today the fish

they are home in their beds
at home in their beds

it’s about the join
the point where the human torso joins the fish
the horse attaches to the human

A good find. THanks for sharing it, Gary.

Thanks. I love the notion of combined species. I guess they're like cyberpunk cyborgs. Preprostetics.
