By Sarah O’Connor

what does
this body want?
this more-than-machine of
earth and electricity
I have known
my whole life?
looking down at her
now, I feel
we are long-lost relatives
wary of each other
neither the way the
other remembers.
what does she want?
I have no earthly idea
but I am asking her to
teach me.
