Self-Portrait as Aquifer

June 21, 2008

As if flesh were permeable —

not flesh exactly, but the whole body
we carry around,
what we feel with —

like rock rain-sodden, permeable
(willing, unwilling)

of water’s need
to be going somewhere

like me right now
wanting to go out in the rain —

how could I have known how deep

you would enter me?
