.how you break is important

My will was a body turned

inside-out - nothing marigenous, after all

In the bath I notice I’m not a cavern of voices

I have to remind myself

that I’m alive and I’m a


immersed, naked,

way safer; an exclusive forest

This skin, the sturdiness of it

so lush it osculates the way

a scream breaks barriers

Now sporting a breath too real for the sea
