such a wild prose

by Alexandra Renwick

you’re such a wild prose;
saying you hate poetry
won’t negate the flow of you
you make of me a moebius strip
curving into your curves
twisting into your twists

one side becoming another
so no end can exist,
just one long beginning

threading through all the spaces
across all the acres of our skin
and our insides too:

tiny folds and crenelations
of our unknowable pieces
recognized but not discovered

run fingers over my beginning
and beginning and beginning—
…..see? you can’t find

the place where I stop:
just you exist
and I exist

one wild enduring prose
turned inside out and
looping back together
