Acrobat

The real me shimmers
within and without the flesh and bones
pulsing
sometimes huge, diffuse, cool and far reaching
other times close around my skin
a cloak of light

The real me hovers
Weightless, luminous, within the encircling ribs
Like an acrobat dressed in light
swinging amongst the stars
in a strange universe
