like light is.
like my speckled skin: brim
and brink. verge.
that’s me: floating around with the light. little mote.
fluff uncoupled from the seed head: a blown wish:
stage one, stage two, buckle. glow. the doctor said more
like one-and-a-half. only particle.
what I harbor. like light.
a labor, letting go.
