Day 791: waiting

i cannot feel the surface of my leg
it has hardened for the 7 hours of drilling
but theres something under the skin burning
i think its my grandmother caught behind the eyes of her pueo

tomorrow iʻm going back to cali
today my roots are burning
it seems so fitting
and yet i wish
things could just get easier as the time passes
the weight is heavier
your back is weaker
and the walk is much longer
im wondering how long i will carry this alone
until i sacrifice my pride
and curiosity
and ask someone to stay
only if she is willing to break in the morning
only if she can see herself in my reflection
only if she is willing to keep me
