“I came to explore the wreck. The words are purposes. The words are maps.” – Adrienne Rich


she and i

were frightened to come but we came

i only know what my body whispers to

me and she says to explore

the forgotten places the

caverns the death the ships that wreck

i only know what my heart sings the

feelings that she sculpts into words

the loves that are

eternal renewing with purposes

i only know what my brain screams at me the

terror she stitches into words

you are stronger than you think you are

a body’s pulse churning pulsing out the maps
