between blue curtains
darker than sky

we talk about pain. Our bodies
are in our lives and then

stuttering. I like questions
and answers, and to know

how injury happens,
I like sunlight on concrete,

a shop with plastic pillows,
to wonder what tendons

look like, the delicate
drawing of a man's body,

his pink muscles, his parts,
