Rain Scald

When you’ve been standing (in rain) so long, you no longer hear
or feel it falling— you believe it’s stopped. Step away— 

look to your (skin; muck itch. It’s a) shame, your hands
have gone bald from fungus. Taking you to (what’s beneath scab,

to) one of those nights when you know (your gums will bleed.
To say) it’s been a while or that it has to do with (wrist mange

is to say rot comes so easily now, skin weep—) lapse. Step through
the whole (black of your home,) and still know damp, know

(exactly when to cup your finger for) the light switch.

                       `           `           `
so familiar (in aubade)
                                                                                      shame, your hands

have gone haywire. Taking you to (what’s beneath rust: ranges

they’ve grazed—) a time

            when you’re combed through

                                                when you know your knuckles—

and all that the rain has swallowed.*

Kin 241: Red Resonant Dragon

I channel in order to nurture
Inspiring being
I seal the input of birth
With the resonant tone of attunement
I am guided by the power of space
I am a galactic activation portal
Enter me.

Every moment is a spiritual opportunity and potential opening.*
