i have NEVER liked my body not
even as a kid in school. Tub-
rub-a-dub the moony brothers called me
on the bus. i had to play home base
i could not run. i could not see
to hit the ball ’til it was in my face
too late. i could not move. i did not learn——
too many clothes too hot too tight——to spring to
skip to swing to jump to push or pull to flex and fall.
Not true. i fell a lot. The same knee
scabbing over the old scab. Not healing
the perfect excuse

to hide from the audience
the body i do not like
