Examining every chunk
Swallowing mudstone after mudstone
That compete to be the first
To weigh down a hungry belly
But they hold no threat
For a belly on fire
1300 degrees fahrenheit
I have closed my eyes
And gulped LIFE down whole
And all the innards ~ you are in my wilderness now!
~ Juicy red fiery cell upon cell ~
All containing history, geography, chemistry, language
Every moment I have ever breathed life into
Yes, you are in my wilderness now. Come.
