She Ponders Limbs

arms and legs
toes fingers
lips then
shaping words
brain she cannot see
but feels throbbing
inside her skull
certain bits
so her limbs
arms legs toes fingers lips
move on cue

and this other
body in her arms
slipping into sleep
lashes folding
onto chubby cheeks
breath undulating
tiny waves lapping
over his chest
arms resting
across his tummy
but now and then
his legs twitching
still dancing to
spring wind’s woodpecker
scaling the redbud like a cliff.
