Metamorphosis

at the beginning there was a sound
in the deepest place of my heart

beholding first — a little thirst i expound
as i yearn wholly to be churned in parts

inner worms sing like choirs in holy psalms
heavy warm-breezes saturates my palms

my lungs made burden’d in calms
a process pertains one to be in halfs

while i wait for that change in despair
a stomach rumbles with a vivid stir

shattered side by side and below
flattered in yonder with a taste to go

scorned by time with a twist of joints
a little metamorphosis to trigger;
                                           — in my loins

atlas i’m made anew in a whole view
