shadow-womb

because the shadow
is the dark matter
from which we were
born

because it knows how
to reveal in tiny star pin-holes
the most genius parts
of us

because shadow, she
blankets us in medicine
that silences us into
being

because breath is
trapped and then slowed
to the sound of
OM

there in shadow
we lay down and
curl up and hibernate until
rebirth

where once again
light can be gathered
into open arms and a cleansed
heart
