destroyer, creator,

embodied feminine nature,

mortar, cornerstone

the power i had disowned

supplanted with a synthetic,

pathetic, acquiescence

to conditional sentience,

bartered for a false peace.


i swept

the mica scintillations

beneath hardened

heated pavement

in exchange for frosted comfort,

the constricting garment

that dulls sensitivity

to unifying energy.


bared to celestial beams,

i wipe this tender skin clean,

to repel distraction,

and pale satisfaction.

reception and release,

to give is to receive,

a precision aptitude

in perpetual gratitude.
