Day 15: Symphony

Sweat collected in the crater of my neck
heat callused to my skin
and scabbed over again
over again

there is a process to shedding heat in this city
along with every worry
it is developed through a patient practice
in which woman
peel back the most out layer of themselves
over again
build over a masterpiece of the one that once existed

every evening i am reminded of the way the day can stick to you
and i find myself in ceremony
standing under a symphony of water falling over
do not let the sound of breaking out
not to remind anyone but yourself that the shedding occurs
over again

they know already
and need no reminder other than their own

keep your body quiet
let no one hear the tears turn
to symphony too
