Day 9 of #365poems: Corporeal Continuum Or Something Odd Like That....

By Juliejordanscott

Paratroppersher guts dive bomb into the clay soil of her Bakersfield front yard

fruitless, it was, the attempt to avoid camouflage wearing paratroopers

who she could see were aiming their weapons straight for her most fragile spaces

she responds like she did long ago sitting

on the bleachers for the away side

north arlington was getting close to the

goal line and could end up winning

hands over her ears.  eye wrinkled tightly shut.

maroon and white proudly worn over

her shoulders

a book she read long ago and hated mumbled “instinctual

nucleaus articulated as a nondisjunction”  

she mumble-shouts, “Oh, really, Julia Kristeva?”

the invisible author stares back, glasses balanced

just above the upturned curve of her nose

she frowns at herself, writing a poem with

neither punctuation nor capitals must

mean that bloated author was righter

smarter and probably funnier and sexier

than she

she took cover under a blanket of words

as usual

a place where neither the clay soil

nor the paratroopers nor

the pretentious writer

had any power

over her

for now

365 poems avatar dealy bobberThis is my first poem for the 365 poem challenge. I am starting at 9/365 so it doesn't get confusing. I look forward to getting to know the other poets and getting my poetic lifestyle moving and grooving again. Writing plein air
