Nothing Is a Body


                                    For my birth father

I wish I had the dust of you, a grave
to visit. I’m running on your sea legs right now,

tired of the little bits—not even leftovers.
I’m a tourist in your life and I wonder:

Does your heart have its own body?

This sentence is not a body.
Nothing.

Nothing is a body
until there are arms around it.
