jerking travels begin the dance..
..that guides you through life
skin clings to bones, hands over head,
legs bending and stretching

a flip a coin chance of living an ancestor’s experience
rewinding the video and replaying with you in their footsteps
as you reach for a sip, the glass shoots across the table
as you glide over the floor, you pretzel and end up facing south

transversing body from tips
regressing back to the control center.. body takes on a dubious mold
the mind follows as dementia seeps into every crevice
like an avalanche rational faculties tumble

words meant to communicate push further from realism
slurred and broken speech mirrors the cloud..
..that covers prior zealous functions
sounds seep to express but modest clockwork is understood


from Grietas de la Percepción, released July 20, 2011
