Learning to crawl


Two things occur to me as I watch you

spine arching twisting rolling
trying to coordinate with
arms pushing pulling pivoting
trying to coordinate with
legs bending flexing kicking

and again

roll twist arch
pull push pivot
kick flex bend

and again

roll pull bend
twist push flex
arch pivot kick

and again

roll push bend
twist pivot kick
arch pull flex

you don’t give up
and
my floor is filthy.
