Running

Running away does not involve feet

Feet are good for winning

And running to

Away requires a sleight of hand

Cartwheels

My feet are still

My hands grasp covers

Turning pages into others

I flit from death to love

And back again

A cartwheel of bookends

Upside down in print

I run

And run

And run

Through plots thickened

My feet do ghost cartwheels

My hands talk

And talk

And talk

To nobody

A sign

Of my times
