Abundant By Bri.G


I trapped my god/in cheesecloth/squeezed
with my whole body/wingspan/ stretching the
tips of my fingers /collapse to fill the decanter of
my two clean palms/ a pomegranate/613 seeds
and distasteful rind to carry them / I unsheath
my sharpest blade and/freed them
of their home/grave/water droplet rubies /I put 3
in my pocket/ to carry/ wedged one passed my
breasts/ lodging into a disk /with one reluctant
hand/crushed the rest / let juices/leak my fingers
/and there was god / alighted unburdened/quiet in
my palm/look past a small being/ the r e a c h i n g
world beneath my feet/ smile/a sigh/ tremble whisper/

please be gentle, and everything
will come and come abundant
