Manipulable

A thickness about my waist reminds me
now, of the enormous girth of an ancient oak tree,
almost
dead.

My arms feel leaden,
and I think of that same old oak tree – branches
propped
up
by
rods,
as my arms
descend into
playdough
rolls that –
twist and
thin
to a
p
o
i
n
t.

Manipulable.

I pick myself up and recreate my youth.
