Or is it all quite different?
as brutal as the impersonal damp
the non-human body of the damp
feeding the stove of god.

Health is unlegislated
it unfurls raw on the table
the extent to which its meaning does not exist ripens
a thousand years pass.

The movement, just outside perception
traverses limbs, skin, organs, hair
as if it were the purpose of this sentiment not to be expressed
its scale is unknown but pervasive.
