The Spirit in My Body


I haven't carried my spirit in my body
for three days now.
And there are patches on my skin
too insensitive to cover
it up.
I have forgotten how many layers of
skin I need to form to
really heal.
My mother says "give it time",
I give it me time.
I have spaces in my lungs in
the place of air sacs
that I fill with loss and exhale it as grief but I mourn
differently - with my dirge just an outburst of
dry breath.
By now,
am convinced that
healing knows my birth name,
and as my mother would say,
healing is earth's way of bringing me
to rebirth,
but I haven't carried my spirit in
my body for three days now,
and the area of my skin that
conditions my heart to beat for you
is numb.
