On Gravity



How do we move
under weight?
What opposite force
d0 we generate
that keeps our clothes
floating around us,
for instance, or goes
any distance toward
explaining our fondness
for jumping
Some pump,
like a fish tank's, maybe;
some auto-aeration or something.
Because we're glad some mornings,
and buoyant, as though we had no
bombs or appointments.


Against Gravity * by Kay Ryan

*I gave myself a day off yesterday to work in my garden, be gentle on yourselves this weekend it feels good.
