i do not try to still my shaking. 
don’t try to hold together my vibrating big toe 
as it presses the gas peddle 
or quiet the tremor in my elbows as they 
connect down to the steering wheel 

i let the Body pulse and quiver and tremble with
all the words it does not say
all the sounds it does not shout 

my tongue sucks to the roof of its mouth 
and all the teeth clack as much as they want to
