8:29pm by HanaLena Fennel – Love Thy Neighboring Country Series

8:29 pm

This is a howling moment

caught

held silent

echo in a ribcage scaffolding

degrigated to a flaccid gasping

Self god, could I

have the breakwaters 

the tide and flesh

the empty space 

of self worship

Self god, could I

have the barking

of a low slung belly

gravid and sweet nectar

ripe fruit splitting

Could I have the letting go?

The flood and fire? 

The Self, G-d?

The more than self?
