January 23

Take me back, through the blur of time, to that lake
where the barrier breaks between that caring
child and this butcher we’re bred to revile.

Sit me under firs on the shore, split
me along that line which occurs when we
let our dry skin defer to our wet
depths, where what stirs breeds regret.
