Machinery beyond machine

Body and flesh —
machinery beyond machine
soul enfolded
heart tick-tock
mind, the slave and master
a break is to break free
not to break down
embracing self
the duty of health
chance and second chances
beauty and mechanics
frailty and primal gears
courage laced with fears
laughter spiked with tears
dancing molecules
galloping years —

—Terri Guillemets
