Poem: Origami 

We made the kind of love

Meant for the light

Bodies grinding

Where our souls could not

How we twisted and hinged at the joints

How we strained at the muscles

To fit together

In the most perfect way

The beauty of an origami swan

Meant for all of the light

In the world

  • a poem by Mitch James.
