The human body is seventy percent Sargasso Sea

(a reduction)

Because we don't think
of drinking water
as cannibalism or swimming
as incest, I gather
my age spots into a semaphore
and signal rain
to come love my skin
again, everything
I do is an affair
with water, go to Paris,
the Musée D'Orsay,
where the art
is boring but trains
once came and went,
see that, how fluid
dynamics govern travel
and poetry, or the mind
cutting the course
of its flow with liquid
teeth
