In Impossible Darkness by Kim Rosen

Do you know how
the caterpillar

Do you remember
what happens
inside a cocoon?

You liquefy.

There in the thick black
of your self-spun womb,
void as the moon before waxing,
you melt

(as Christ did
for three days
in the tomb)

in impossible darkness
the sheer
of wings.

–Kim Rosen
