shedding cells or slipping
into the other ether the air around.
the weight of the body leaking into the floor.
the weight of the skull. arms and hands.
the weight of the back and pelvis legs and feet.
the weight of lists.
shadows into earth.
sloughing off blood walls of womb
birthing the death of another birth
in the nest of pelvis
cavity of ribs
cave of skull
Isle of molecular pleasure
ravishing flourish of bacteria
potent passages of fluids
leaking through orifices
skin slipping hair detaching purging
meander through earth in all directions
detritivores and decomposers
uprising earthworms threading through the bones
burrow between ribs
transmute tissues to soil
opening capillary tunnels
mycelial networks extend nutrient channels
to the forest underground –
