laid out

eyes icing up with

afternoon clouds spread by an invisible knife,

he is perfectly vulnerable

daring any religion to

swoop off with his bared stomach. 

under his skin back  

all the grass is just one big thing

it goes off for miles and miles

he can tell just from his, man-sized chunk. 

he begins to remember from where he fell to there,

but finds that it’s enough

the earth happened to catch him so.
