Elbow room

by Marisa Siegel

(Space for movement)

What code
Is outgrown, too old for breaking
Structure,

A singular reality

Really, counting days
Before going under

A new line,
Fixed
Perhaps by empty

Space,
That the echo
Would have been enough

Science, though
Hollowed out
Is not reassurance

Insurance,
A window is left obscured

Fuzzy field of vision,
Whispered word

Repeated: repeat, repeat, repeat,

What code
Is too old, breaking
Structure before going
Under,

A new line
