Más que una cara

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.
