I don’t fear melting into this earth.
I wake into the air
I do not rise I do not move
I do not open my eyes
until my nose has sensed persuasion
my tongue has tasted sweetness
and my ears have heard the world
I was a child with dreams of becoming
Now I am older with dreams of being
Nothing and everything is changing.
I am like a snake shedding its skin
biting its tail
erasing the lines
