Annie Diamond I like our bodies when

; are soft, are fruitflushed

, borrowed cotton next to cotton


, are prepositioned (against, against)

; am butterflied (split-pinned-prized)


, am cartographed, am canonized

, am mouth back wrist thighs


, am water sign, am shoe size nine

; am some times less than sum of parts


, but some times (now) more. Now

, when we are with our bodies


; our hips agree

, am half in love with evidence of bones


, am opposite of archaeologist

, nothing buried, nothing past
