napowrimo 2017: #6

the universe expands
and stretches us with it

no matter that we’re
more bone
than rubber

it only recognizes
the light
beneath the flesh,
the intangible substance of atoms
jumbled in our blood.

we perceive a centrifuge
tearing us apart...

it knows us
as the knitting
lovingly twisted and turned
between its fingers.
