Off Topic: Today’s Verse 2

She stroked the point
of my line segment
Point A,
the ankle
stretching to Point B,
the hip socket.
She wrapped her tiny ambition
around three coordinates
(2,0)
(-2,0)
the wrists
(0,0)
the origin of the underbelly
thinning down to a 50/50 chance
that I could make another point
for a plane
to even out
the hemp strings coiled
around the seat belt
strapped to a lacrosse stick
in the middle of a checkmate
stance
She struck at the coffin corner
out of the lights
dragging my limbs with her
.
