Being Towards the World 

with this organic trauma and this visceral joy. 

 

The body senses world and saves world. 

Its experiences make up the complex structure of the selves 

we use to negotiate life. 

 

Bodies, unruly, defiant and fractured, insistently plastic and 

stubbornly present, carry forth their memories in 

unpredictable ways. 

 

This vessel of present identities and past becomings 

is moved 

by what has occured to it while itself occuring onto others. 

 

My body

Writes into your flesh

The poem 

You make of me. (1)
