appear to disappear

the heart
a drunk firefly
flickers sometimes

we equate the dark with absence

thinking we are our thoughts
diminishing the gods in our blood
the listening in our pores

the cosmic beat
in our chests wouldn’t harmonize
with light if light wasn’t our home

our bodies are talking
honor their language

the deep knowing that curls from the nerves out
our organs are whispering
from cell to cell

we wake sometimes so raw
a white light

a humming in our eyes

Esalen, 2016
