It’s so funny to me how I can’t die
I’m already too tangible, too
I’ve been bleeding from my womb for longer than that,
my hair looped in four-stranded braids
from then til infinity.
And I’ve been life
and you’ve been death
(not enemies until recently),
just an understanding that
we’re opposite as Asia and North America
are on the old imperial map
(our shores also flow into one another).
