i wake in a different body

being less than i was

emptied out

through the bloody keyhole

my old home / my new home

the same / not the same

i dis/solve

wide shingle skies / speckled walkways

where charcoal-crushed violets fizzle

black silt flaking / spiky connective tissue

books shelved / dust heavy / intent layered

worlds unexplored / paths not yet navigated

unimagined / the invisible writer / freshly minted

eats everything
