Ripe fruit

The body

Is a soft pomegranate

Shiny seeds spilling out

Soft offering proffers

Sell by date

Arbitrary or fated circles within circles

Once, you bled

The same crimson as a dress you wore to fireworks night

Until invisible hands

Ushered away the urge to bring

Life wriggling on flat earth

Straining you heard

A primal cry

It was you

Half covered with sweat

Shaking off

The emptiness of the day

Your belly full

Of hours

      2. Sent it first class on the 13th. (So 9 days, not 10.) Next time will send UPS! Please don’t apologize for being “tardy”. I totally understand about rough weeks. Just take care of yourself first. Will look forward to book, but don’t rush. Hugs! ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž
