cause of uncoordinated movements.

ancient bones
beneath
your feet
step
carefully
for
i am
told
some spirits
resent
your intrusions
and
have been known
to reach up
and
grasp
the heel
of a soul
and
drag it down
just
far enough
to make one
lose
their balance
for
no reason
it would seem
but
it is
for this
reason

two for one…

two for one

aunt bea
was sitting outside
reading a birth announcement
from a grand-niece
she said
i’ve read
that everyday
while two people
are dying
four are
being born
that’s
one sorrow
for
two moments
of joy
life and death
seem
to be
out of balance
