may we always have

may we always have
just enough to share – like growing
so much perilla

that we can invite both friends
and foes to heal what ails them

after being split

some seasons after,

words are like rubber-

the scraped knuckles from

the scraped knuckles from
when i changed
the sheets have scabbed
over. i could not feel
the cells pulling the wound
together, like a builder
laying tiles. i did not
hear the fibroblasts calling
for a huddle, an assembly, or
a clambake. they say upon
injury, a set of complex
biochemical events takes
place in a closely
orchestrated cascade,
but in a way, all
healing should
require so much silence

in the record

in the record
of how
perilla found its way
into our kitchen, inspiring
reverence, then
addiction,
it will be written
that the love of music
was inescapable,
and the tenderness
of wrists,
so naturally
interwoven
