The body hangs
from the spine
like a wet rag sags
on a bending wire
coat hanger,
and how quickly
it loses its shape
and fails
under the weight,
the pressure,
while vertebrae
one after the other,
like dominos
fall in spectacle,
that I wonder
how they ever
stacked them
in the first place,
and now, only wish
they’d had
a steadier hand.
