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.
