“Dig deep within yourself, for there is a fountain of goodness ever ready to flow if you will keep on digging.” Marcus Aurelius

An Archeology Of Self

I passed through my skin to the ground
so gently, like silk to soft clear water,
my bones so beautifully alabaster upon 
the humous that enwombs me entirely with
an invitation to dig among the layers of 
my paradox, completely incompleted 
thresholds of discovery ghosted in 
opaque moments of connection that 
fire my flesh and fill my core, and 
there, in that moment, I am in myself
again, renewed, re-membered, alive.
