the word

Posted to Poetry

nascent means "coming into being"

god, just think: we were born once,
and we were really tiny
and covered in blood
and we had a little cord
attached to our bellybuttons
our heads were full of heartbeats
and we saw a bright light
and sucked the tit

that's how my adventure started
which somehow led to me
sitting here
much bigger now
my head full of much more
than heartbeats
writing this
about a time in my life
i do not remember.
