Discovery

24 July 2007

for Claudia
 
 
groove carved in your brow
you consider the motion
of your fingers –
splayed first,
then curling,
two at a time
to a loose fist

a moment earlier
your head jerked back,
face crumpled,
perplexed
by what you saw

an amateur scientist
you tried your theory –
actively observed
until satisfied

then your gaze lowered
to your feet
in case
your
toes
might
move
too.
