I have seen
the shape
of my soul.

The stem
I struggle to keep straight
is a fluid thing:
the head I would hold up
has no trouble
bowing down.
And what I would keep
new and moist
with such ease,
as if my soul enjoys
every second
of its changing form,
and hidden
in each anxious fear is
a long
laugh –

I have met
the shape of my soul.
What cannot be seen
is perfectly
