Monks wash my face
and pine needles purify my feetyet to remove this dead, decaying outer layer
which no longer serves to guard my boundaries
I must use my nails

scratching, scraping
sifting through the cellular archive

so when I enter the night
and touch the snow
I can greet the sky
and feel the stars bless my skin
