Two

by Marisa Siegel

1.

In any specific situation there must be
Given the context and related facts
A skin / Boundaries
That do not ask for definition,
A way of moving without pushing
Up against. In any specific situation
There will be actors, must be bodies
Moving across and against mouthing
Words that will exist as a reminder
A tattoo / July
With a new heat, and a familiar exercise.

2.

I am not asking. A question which stills,
Resting, biding time. A birthday.

Bone stirs, fidgets, restless. Buried
And digging / uncovered and hiding.

A swing, a scar, an urn.
Objectively overwrought,

Ringing branched open window.
