Slow Burying

from by Tim Woulfe



slow burying, i am
slowly burying
my body in layers of clothe and bone
so it
doesn't show

soft encouraging, i am
softly encouraging
my life to be free and affirming

and it brings a feeling that is
so rare
raw progress by any means is
so rare

slow burning, i am
slowly burning
holy wood from my bedroom mantle
it clouds my dreams with thick uplifting smoke
and this
ritual slows down the day
and keeps me breathing
in the rhythm of the river where i
spent my early life
learning, imprinting, soaking

to feel at home anywhere is
so rare
to stay true to the old self is
so rare
but i am
always remembering
