the sap that abandoned its tree
and now eggs.
the earth before
it split into a thousand directions
acting as if it divorced itself
would i not take an obvious choice only because it is evident?
i take it. i take it. do not spoil!
why it is
bolts screws suffering
in the nude
i was conflicted.
i remembered molestation.
it would have gone on but
these are my boundaries.
i removed my black covering and went inside.
raising caterpillars. cold fog. separating
only due to weakness in grip.
am i going to get shot now
in new places
or the ones that hurt just as well?
o, tao, do not fail to be. do not lie to me.
