Stretching Your Celestial Body

Do you sometimes rise at 3 a.m. with us and wonder–

where to stretch the tips of your celestial body

when it has outgrown its shell?

Do you look around and find the slips and circles of us

glittering and glowing in our amorphous forms?

Perhaps catching the thick of one piece in motion

the sliver of another in static trance

as we bounce and slither awkward forms around in happy commotion.

We see you wondering why, reasoning whether to join in.

With each movement,

we open and form this comforting pattern of color and texture

that never lived before, that never lived before.

And yet we are alive here together, we are.

Our wild bodies warming the unspoken.

Will you allow yourself to join us?
