the potpouri of dried beliefs
that scent my being

the unexamined tide that pulls me
I know nothing, sit in silence

ground my electric being
in the earth, over and over

again, as each new fragrance
generous and vivid triggers

another trauma welcomed
again and again. There is no

should be, only this embrace
of what is emerging

I recognize this
and let it go

now this
let it sizzle through my energy

field and held in your constant
kind regard as we breathe

in and out the simmering
stew of existence here now.
