Perpetual Motion

She begins to understand how to create
energy by expending it, how sliding
her hand over skin that holds

a body other than her own can
create another motion that lasts
out into the daylight, into

an unfamiliar future. She finds
how this motion of lip against
lip, teeth against nipple, tongues

seeking creates electricity
that will jump from bone into
muscle, thru her brain, moving

her out into the street, toward another
body, another home.
