Created Backwords

Dear gods, can’t we reverse body and spirit?
Can’t we wear our spirits as visibly as we wear
our bodies? Can’t we let our bodies slip
into poetry’s analogies and leaping metaphors?

Why not let our twisted frames become
imagined things, like angels or demons?
Don’t they already torture us enough
with the cruel promise of eternal damnation?
