Empty the closet
More space is needed to dig and bury,
Lay flush
Flowered textures sinking their roots
Into vertebrae
Crawling for a place to rest,

Got up inconsistently
Shaking in forlorn celebration
Displays of repose displaced
With each pebble kicked
All along the gravel road leading
To peace and uneasiness,

Swallowed sallow stained
Oscillating reflections
Resting in clarity,

A broken accordion whispers
Exhaling stuttered sighs
The bellows are riven
Ragged and struggling
From the bathroom's rib cage,

Heaving another disconcerted shuffle
Stifle regurgitation long enough
For it to make sense,
A necessity to feel the heart beat
Speaking sick and ticking
Ethereal syllables resembling Morse Code,

Being but just barely
Cradled by opposing perception

Morning rise in grace
Of being sheltered and shed
Cleanse with the aroma
Of moisture slithering off feathers of aster,
Maple diary aged sweetly
Basking under clouds of goodness
Sprinkling recalescence
At ease and armistice
Another piece discarded
Fingers crossed it’s possible
To become human
By becoming nothing at all
