just not today

it’s like watching a skeleton

bones dressed in skin
that’s sunk to clutch
like a one-piece body suit
in and out of contour bones

sockets
and cavities

she looks like death

it is close
but interspersed
with shuddered inspirations
gasped and grasped
at intervals
waiting for the one

come on

one more time

again
again

once more

again
.
.
.

again

a corpse who’s shipping air
she’s going to die
but not right now
not today

she’s busy

come on come on
let’s go again
.
.
.

again
again again

no
not today
.
.

again
