Skin masks flesh,
flesh skeleton--what does skeleton mask?
Greater suppleness in dimensions asks—
where does hollow night turn inside out?
Is it worms or double-jointed gods
whirring many-armed and many-legged
through bones of fleshless salts?
You can run at eventide but even so
the moon will never let you go.
