Shadows & light in the deepest cave


layer upon layer 
pearls grow white-cancer
boning every space
left empty by sea, and you

here, my words are granite



~0~0~0~0~


what the light touches
what the soil breathes under cave
become seed, forest
greening grey stones, every hurts-

here, my heart is a bird song
