23 – 30 day poetry challenge

Day 23 – Write a seven line poem that begins with “it’s true that fresh air is good for the body” (from Frank O’Hara’s poem “Ave Maria”) and ends with “this is our body” (from Gary Snyder’s “The Bath”).

***

it’s true that fresh air is good for the body
but we all know air is invisible
and so are ghosts that reside in it
so every time you’re having sex outside
the spirits around you are whispering:
do you mind?
this is our body!
