I’m ready for the compost heap

I’m ready for
the compost heap.

I’m ready to give
it all away
to the light.

Your unbearable humidity
ripens me so quickly, breaks down my boundaries
teaches me to rest.

I’ve been trying to carry the weight for you,
but I can’t figure out how take it
out of your chest.

New life explodes into this world
my empty body
blinded by the kaleidoscopic rainbows,
of that place that we have
all called home
so long ago.
