I've been silent for a day.

Clipping fingernails

toes too

I've smothered skin with ointments

stubbed my toe

claws anew

Heard the birds singing, the cat has shit on his paw

I will never go back to this place.

My eye weeps, it has been touched wrong.

And we can never repair.

So we forgive.

And live sans ego.

Love unconditional.

The echo goes...
