Transmutation~by Paul Lenzi


 

 

Transmutation

change

“Change (Self Portrait)” by Lucy Jane Purrington

fighting the feeling

the uselessness

weary and wasted

the hands and legs

given to ghosts

abled only by sleep

a subconscious

performance of

memory bones

disobedient

muscles distrusted

flawed senses of

touch and of sight

unreliable failing

all joy of the doing

reduced to the wist

of the thinking

the mind

now resigned

dispossessed

of a vigorous

fleshly appliance

puts paid to the

reign of the body
