The curves of the spine of an animal
Reveals, at times,
So, too, the curves of a human’s spine
Whisper secrets about the spirit
About the way that person moves through the world.
I meet so many people who push their way – right through the small of the back, curving it more and more
And there are people who are pulled through their lives by their heads
Those that are just barely catching up with themselves
Those who are pushed down.
The landscape of the spine
Backing each person
As their own special hillside view.
