Asking

especially during refuge
I feel the moon dig
through a difficult womb

desperate for comfort
begging for rebirth –

this life has burned
flesh from bone
stripped every vein
from duty

and I have just sat
chewing on beetles
biting off fingerprints

asking for peace

    Great last line, we all want that peace , shame it doesn’t want us.💜
