Elyse Fenton Maybe inside all our bodies is the fine body of an ultramarathoner, a body that needs to be lubricated against itself, that needs to be doggedly watered and hand-fed and salted periodically with tablets no bigger than the sori of a fern, that just needs the steel-banded calculus of trust to take it and take it good, the body, yes, your own soft body leads by a leash along the rocks flanging the dark pines, the body your body jerks to a stop in the rough clearing, hands on shoulders on knees on unblessed ground, the body your body sledges with rusted stakes through the palms, achilles, nipples, that drives a chain rippling through the intestines with the blindness of water approaching the dam, blindness of boys at the edge of the woods cinching themselves into some dusty unnameable shape--threat or surrender with its parallel lines--toward a voice with a sledge in its hands and a chain in its teeth calling come and get it brother, come and get it. elyse fenton
