double engender

i fall. frequent
exposure. to every
effect. painting patterns
you cannot trace.
form. reform. i am
supposing. that should
summon some unseen
saviors. circle. i shut
off again. far away
returning. i almost scratched
another open wound
praying for visible
scars. reciting roots
to express the source –
another promise. spit
versions to accommodate
what you say is
the last time. i swear
to repeat.
