Body Types

Posted in poem by johnsontoms on August 5, 2011

So many body types but two-by-two we still fit together

Though one-by-one someone always pulls out,

drops out

falls out

quits to find another.

Like so many before and so many after but that’s what makes it easy

To think about later when it’s too late

“It was a mistake”

said by the time it’s dead

And we’re left 1×1 to wander around as a bunch of bodies

touching bodies

feeling bodies

piecing bodies together for just a minute to remember

That 2×2 is better and think that maybe 2×2 is best for only a minute

Because 1×1 is the only way to go about it all

Even though 2×2 is the only thing on anyone’s mind.
