UNTETHERED, FOR MY ARMS TO RETURN

i.

i looked for my arms and was gone[1]
floated out of the container
holding my flesh, also known as
a body, my body, floating out

waiting, untethered, for my arms to return
my body, flesh contained, whole, known as
floating, looking for space
throughout far-reaching planes

always reaching arms
always flesh, my body

ii.

always flesh, my body
when floating, reaching
holding all the glances, all the notions
gathering discrete parts into a whole

through space, looking for the space
in which to construct a body, my body
flesh contained, but untethered
compounding different notions

i wanted to hold together
i looked for my arms and was gone
