UPSIDE DOWN IN A TREE

UPSIDE DOWN IN A TREE
Philip Vermaas

(love)
My heart’s the buoy
of my soul,
that’s how I know
it’s in a hole.

(pleasure)
My soul’s just brighter
than my heart,
that’s how I know
my soul is dark.

(thought)
My mind is dimmer
than them both,
that’s how I know
this won’t be quoth.

(death)
My body bends
to all three,
that’s how I know
it’s turned on me.
