Earrings

Bare

i forgot

to wear earrings today,

silver and turquoise,

shaped like stars,

fire and earth,

brilliant

reminder 

of my origin.

.

i feel

Bare

which is different from

Naked

as in the absence of covering

or

Nude

pertaining to exhibition,

Bare

the simple lack of a disguise,

i feel

Bare

.

stones

with holes in them

are places between worlds.

if you brushed my ear, would it reveal

my ghosts or my angels?

        Bare
