Living Proof

 

and so, i took the temperature of the mouth.
and so, i took the temperature of the armpit.
washing it first, patting it dry, closing
the arm to the body,
tucking the elbow where the waist is.

and so, i took the temperature of the anus,
bending my arm around my back
to do so.

churchbells rang out, it was noon.
no-one was outside on the road.

everywhere, everywhere, everywhere:
the same temperature.
