winter, ancient time holder

locking stories in cores of ice

dividing worlds, glacial walls

i want to exist within them

dive below the epilimnion

into frigid waters

my skin forms hills

deeper still

my skin forms ice sheets

this is the place i choose to rest

and listen

to the wisdom of the new season.
