atlas
By: Justin Cook

feel these shoulders
head downcast from heaven.

who knew how heavy
an atom could be
split like a wishbone.

unfasten my back
spine arched, a swan neck
deformity in fingers. mountains
cavern shoulder blades
dulled.

till candles blow out i bear
the equator an ornamental halo.
