Sock

Kay Ryan
13 Snaps

Imagine an
inversion as
simple as socks:
putting your hand
into the toe of
yourself and
pulling. Now
when you talk
you are relieved
to find your tongue
is inside out. And
when you say I
believe I may be
based on a different
carbon, people
are shocked
as they always
should have been.
