from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

'the one who walks beside you and is who you are not'

open the gate
unlock it
unscrew the hasp, kick it in –
whatever it takes
to break the ego’s deadlock

let the self run free
into the long grass of

– Roselle Angwin
