  There comes a moment

right afterwards,

when I am boneless


like a jellyfish

having been pressed down under

by the force of a wave,

wet and glistening,

floating slowly

back to the surface

coming up so gently,

while still trembling

in the afterflashing.

Barbara Gregory (Pearlman)'7/77
from "Process" - "Afterflash" 1979
