How She Walks


Her heel is first to strike and find a base –
she forward rolls to balance at her toe,
while sinews in her leg extend and brace
the limb against the planet’s pull, and so
her body pushes forward, up, away
from where it postured just a moment past,
and step by step the distances decay,
like heat mirages fade when followed fast.

She lets her movement masticate the blocks
as she’s decanting earthy energy.
She rediscovers how her pulse unlocks
the avenues to anti-gravity
and where the key to everything she seeks
is hidden in the code her body speaks.
