Contraption (M3)

from Helices by Jenny Katz



We are all amateurs here
Trying to play a professional human
Trying to act like we know what we’re doing,
Trying to build something to carry us from A to B
I’ve got some mismatched wheels
and that guy’s got a ski

living in these bodies
that hurt and are afraid
loving other bodies
through all the mess we wake
we’re stronger than we think
and braver than we know
and together is the only way
that this contraption gets to go

Well the problem with society is the people
And the problem with people seems to be our brain
Spinning stories of bitter separation
that you and me and the guy with the ski are not the same

living in these bodies
with all their awkward fluids
loving other bodies
which we cannot stop doing
we’re braver than we think
and freer than we know
and together is the only way this whole contraption
gets to go
