Dislocations: Seven Scenarios, 5

Faces in the mesh: defiance or disdain
remember Paul Nizan?
You thought you were innocent if you said

'I love this woman and I want to live
in accordance with my love'
but you were beggining the revolution

maybe so, maybe not
look at her now
pale lips papery flesh

at your creased belly  wrinkled sac
look at the scars
reality's autographs

along your ribs across her haunches
look at the collarbone's reverberant line

how in a body can defiance
still embrace its likeness

Adrienne RichThe School among the Ruins, Norton, 2004.
