Excavating

Wall Garden  Monte Sant'angelo2

How does one excavate the words form the soul?

How does one excavate the soul from the words?

How does one reach deep down into the muddy substance of being

to extract the beautiful flower which is promised to grow from there?

 

Plunge your hands into the bloody flesh

like a surgeon operating on the heart

but take the gloves off

and feel 

how life is pulsating under your fingers,

how vulnerable all this humanness is.

 

Do you know what you are doing –

or are you just pretending?
