cover me in moss and watch the weeds
shyly greet the sun out of my sharp ribs,
the pretty little purple ones you know?
the ones that echo spring and vibrate the softest

unraveling the day’s question mark curvature by
splaying out my new mossy body
limb by limb once more,
only to fall asleep under those clouds I analyze to death- an honest quiet death,
and wake up with sleepy almond eyes
feeling hazy and
a familiar tugging at my spine

a new body, a new shell, a new home
will not stop the weeds from
even if they are beautiful
