Today's poem is by Corey Mesler

Your Body

How it doesn't carry you around.
How remarkably durable it is,
carrying you around.

How it doesn't stay.
How it is here forever.

How I adore it, with its curves and
declivities, its shallow
places, its grace, its heat and humidity.
How I turn for it in the dark,
and it is gone.

How it is gone. How it is here forever.
