Jimmy Lo

The Box Turtle


taper my corners
to a square one

I go a
head forward

length of one
animal
a time
the source

always
in me
me in mind
and not me

the body with
our selves

the love of
else
what else
every full
filling body
never thinking

what if
the glass
well deepens

the march out
a closer kin
middles ends
needs

ant above all

hell
what is

a mind
in wakes

numbers
comfort
the everyday

every day
feels my feet

come emotion

others'

anothers'

come what may
do they do
