Today's poem is by Shafer Hall & Jennifer L. Knox

All Knee-Jerk, Nuts & Bolts

The only thing left's
one thing: we'll need
a grifting gypsy to read
the bumps but to work
the little buttons we won't
need brains; we won't need
a map to find an empty space
and go to it; we won't need
nothing beneath our feet,
off center; no gravity to
keep our balance, like
from the hip, to limp home;
we won't need eyes
to blindfold each other
