Louise Glück wrote that the “woman’s body is a grave.”
You’ll get no arguments from me.
I’ve been watching my aunt sink ever more into it.
In this light
I can see the animal of truth
unleashing equal parts delirium
What can Time take
that you have not already
let go? Sight, sound, taste
returned to the next in line.
How expert you have become
in looking into the space
behind your eyes.
— “Animal of Truth” by Jiwon Choi
