Return

Scathed we go

Along our ways

Nursing wounds

Our hurts

Others’ pains

Following

The imperative

Of existence

Sometimes

Despite ourselves

In the bones

Of things

Remembering

All the things

Letting go

Enough to

Know

New things

New pains

New joys

All the things

Change

We become

& unscathed

Return
