Seifu Metaferia

LONGING

But for having nothing to peel
I would always be
peeling…
uncovering
life’s little cells
and knots
sorting its peripheral parts
    from the core
even that it has substance and form
        this too       
such intimate knowledge
insights
into the swirl of the living, intricacies of diversity!
