The Dictionary of Bodies dictionary
Jessy Randall

changes your definition
of yourself. The dictionary
of bodies leaps up,
the pages flying out,
the text tangling.

You were in the chapter you wanted to be in.
Now you are in another chapter, far from the first,
and you were never allowed to read it before, and
you're not sure you want to read it now, and it's so
LONG, once you get in you'll never get out, maybe
you'll never want to is what's most frightening.

Like a woman
on a soap opera
you fall in love
with the bad man.
