all along

“all along”

whispers stunning

clarity in the hand

of the moment

of vulnerability

“all along”

 

exposed, raw, naked, cracked open

the pulpy flesh of you spread

out on this rock

“all along”

 

safety, protection, security, assurances

the cactus-spined armor of you spread

out on this rock

“all along”

 

a meal, a feast, an offering, a sacrifice

the whole raw animal of you spread

out on this rock

“all along”

 

“soil in other terms”

she whispers

“you have been here all along”
