Your touch will not heal me –
another distraction.

“waiting for you”

Inside:
red threads connecting
fear-filled brown kidneys,
clear brown waters
connecting old brown papers
to dirt-filled browned bodies-
rooted memories waiting.

“gave them to you”

Inside story:
red threads,
brown waters
sitting,
old brown papers,
connecting
rooted bodies.
Fear.

“we will not wait forever”
