Cameron Morse

On the Rocks

I can rock back
and forth

a little
in the tightening

of ligaments

to restore blood flow.
I can wiggle like a tooth.

Far below my blue
toes feel

impossibly distal
trotting along the shore

line without their owners.
Finally my clock says

how long I have
forgotten to look at

my clock, my wife calls.
The lost ubiquitous

dropped hair of her is
sewn into in my neckline.
