Movement

Let me talk about
the bend of an elbow,
or the bend of a knee,
or the flexibility needed
in a hip socket,
and all these tissues
and ligaments we use
for mobility.

All things worth mentioning.

And shoulders too,
and the way all these parts
can bend and move
the body into how many
displays of affection
we express in action,
in movements we all
too often take for granted.
