Gondwanaland

1 December 2013

erupting in waves
against the sheets
the waves against the pink-
tinged sand
white canvas for setting sun
an exotic arc
terrane the
bare
interior oceans like
that this used to be Australia
the Alabama

push
on the soles
all the organs together
all the organs
outlined in the hand

shores
the map of the whole body
condensed to a fetus

remember to breathe
water breaking
sedimentary memory
of proximal continents

that I hardly remember it
learn to
bear down

curled in the ear,
like an ocean
remember
the rush of
a small ocean
depleting

breaks
around a point
in the solar plexus

foreign to me,
my own memory
lodged in breath glottal

bodies in motion
bodies at rest

the new-born
breath
