my ego wants to kill me

drawn out
where breath meets breathing
penciled in gold leaf by
the engraver's fine stroke
this door that wasn't here before
deadbolt lock
and a
key of moss

nothing is here, only breathing


my ego wants to kill me
smash me through the door into the fire
scalp me, trade me
for trinkets on the craving aisle
here it was for love
there it was for power
a trillion times for love
a trillion times for power
sorted now like duff on the forest floor


there is only breathing, nothing more

braiding water breathing
sifting air breathing
beating heart breathing
earth-touching sole breathing
