on the third day.

on the morning after the day

that tiptoes behind

christmas

relief

finds me

finally

i allow myself to be

washed

rain

falls over me

i am

turned outside

in

folded into a new skin

once upon a time

when i owned all the answers

and

all the answers owned me

i called it praying.

— on the third day.
