After tagging the dust your body is made of

by Jen Tynes

 

After tagging the dust your body is made of

 

sheets flash ceremoniously on the line, in

 

the rain, I am a bone and I take a bone’s

 

pleasure around the ball joint, shading

 

inside the names. When I pass your body in

 

the hallway the illumination gives us three

 

minutes of standing adjacent to the fetish

 

dying. Electricity changes, there is no body

 

to acknowledge through touch, I fling forward

 

past my desires into the formal living room

 

with its collection of bells and its collection

 

of jaw bones. The sparkling line runs across

 

my statement of purpose. To endanger all

 

sense, I lay the body out of its own range

 

of prediction. Token animal, what you know

 

is circling the house, waiting for the first person

 

or its shadow to appear. Without looking

 

forward to sinking through the body, I am

 

still mostly lover position. Place the bone

 

in the window spider plant and beacon.
