discovering lascaux

wellcome library, london (wikimedia commons)

shed your skins,
their undersides

are painted with art
you have been making

in the dark,
your own lascaux :

how deep
will you dare to go ¿

shadow work

Kintsugi

i am emerging into wholeness
through shards of brokenness,

i seem to long to watch me
nearly-not-survive —

i dodge life-ending fragments of my past
in bullet time

i am the actor,
i trained the actor,
i am the finished scene

i am behind the camera, watching me
not-knowing what the end will be

tell me where new days begin

tell me where new days begin ¿
in facing up, in facing in,

in shedding sanctity and sin
like outworn layers of skin
