Cutting Corners - Dec. 28, 2022

what the hell?


I keep kneeing

the edge of the bedframe

shoulder-bumping doorways

scraping my ankles

on boulders in the garden


as if something in me tries

to grind edges off the world

shortcuts to where I want to go


but why why now round off the

physical for my expectations

to create painful impractical paths?


perhaps it’s my spirit

surfacing for more visits

in these advanced years


demonstrating what life will

be like free of this body

an easy pass through obstacles


and all the blood and bumps

scrapes and bruises?


Just a necessary adjustment

for what’s coming
