“Newer Skeletons” by Gina Rangel-Gross
(Or, A Turn of Events I Never
Would Have Anticipated
But Am Not Complaining About)
we are starting to see each other like x-rays.
& ive been examining myself too.
i love this. how else could i learn
so much about bodies
without seeing every
and every bone?
it’s a little close and
a little new and slightly weird
but… anything for the sake
Gina Rangel-Gross wrote this poem while a student at Roosevelt High School, with WITS Writer Emily Bedard. Performed at the Seattle Arts & Lectures 2015/16 SAL Presents series with Siddhartha Mukherjee, May 23rd, 2016.
