gold flows over me,
in streams; slows, knows the wounds and
cracks; fills the pieces
i lack; holding me
like lacquer; precious waste now
sealing and healing;
the cost of dust and
breathing; he brushes my back
eternity, fills;
he is fleeting; as
imperfection, a story
told in scars; open
the jar, pandora;
earning my keeping; demons
burnished and bruising;
i am both broken
and joining; my beating my own;
never history;
closing, closing, my
point and purpose; pain flows
into everything;
enriches and snares
paper plates, porcelain;
silver is showing;
my absence a part
of the whole.
