away from my body,
I found myself in a very gloomy place.
from the rafters, it’s difficult to
separate wonder from amazement.
from my own mouth, I told you
I’d wear those fires like a gown.
I want the flames to lick my heels,
fit snugly around these hips.
these thickets treat me well.
the waves thrash around these bones
and I know they will not break.
