a hip

a hip is a paper pocket
tugged out from under the lotus
flower, a sturdy curve
supporting the rest of a ray-
gentle and strong;
so that when pressure is applied
to one part of the busy world,
it nudges red tide into
a night breeze and through a window
slightly ajar- by
a singular pair of hips,
ellipsoid; coerced side from side
to bony existence.
