weightlessness


you cannot hear the echo if there is nothing
for the sound to bounce off of

look for divinity in starvation
when the rib cage fails to emerge

xylophonic resonance within the skull
starkness of body across a white desert

(pluck out my eyes, they weigh too much)

eschew colors like cream and chocolate
stick to nude and shadow
(for it weighs nothing)

we were force-fed ourselves
and filled up on emptiness

yet were heavier still.
