Exodus

We have
already gone
to the hot side of the sun,

the places where fire
lights on the water, where dark blood
pours through the long night.

We have already been to that far away place.

We know
what waits for us there,
to scrape our heart
with small, sharp teeth.

We will scatter
with all voice
and no sound.
