9/30: the woods found within this body*


“the woods found within this body”

-from Half of What They Carried Flew Away,

 Andrea Rexilius*


my trust issues a clog

in my heart spell

small blisters


rainbow cuts

in the landscape


my leg undergrowths

spirochetes & chasms

having irregular hairs


in between breasts

my thunder belly



mortar, then –

the sticking nest of

desire for something


else not a marriage

not a lichen

though we did walk in

those woods

together for a time


All light melted

I was magma

Damaged tissue
