a different kind of body,
one that was not nearly as fragile,
one maybe like a water buffalo,
more suited to fender benders,
lawsuits and corporate fights.
Actually it tried that, your soul,
being other things,
but then decided
that a form like yours
was the best jumping-off spot,
a springboard you could say,
for your final somersault ... into the Beyond.
