Beyonce, a poem written by Marla Lacherza Bracco at



written by: Marla Lacherza Bracco



Since we have met I have found
a few more bodies that inspire me:

The prepossessing curves of Kilimanjaro
and the running width of the
Tigris and Euphrates

Then there are the rest of us
Trying to flatten our ridges against
our bones—but never calling into
question the smooth and gaping
balance of the earth.
