Sexy Little Neurons
Puzzling little things, I am always thinking
of you, those taut little axons unraveling
bodily movement from synaptic grace. I give
my awe to each neural cinder fulfilling itself
as action, as whim. Who’s to say you don’t
love my body with the shameless release
I imagine you do. Like any lover, I am not
my own but the foolish articulation of limbs.
