GRAVITY FEED Part Thirteen


Her  body changed while she was away from it.
When she came home
the legs were longer, the floor
seemed a long way down,
thinner, less interesting.

She bought a book
to tell her what to do
but all it said was I love you,
a useless sentiment at the best of times—

She dreamed she was a chandelier
and streamed light down to fill an empty room

by then the ground was really far away.
