To Speak as a Floorboard Speaks

by Teresa C. Freitas

To Speak as a Floorboard Speaks

would mean that all touch is pressure
An abrasion or an object giving its weight
to you To become an x-axis your pantry
must be stacked with patience
or the inability to go elsewhere on your own
Tree I wish I could tell you that this
was an appealing future but how can I fault you
for dreading your next life Except that you
get to become the ground

  1. I love this for the patience of the pantry and the dreading of the next life, sometimes I don't think that it is as glorious as they make it appear to be...we do get to become the ground!!!
