Social Isolation: Day 64

Social Isolation: Day 64
This is what it felt like
to be twelve     two months
into spring                 a self
forming out of new leaves,
out of a loneliness with muscle,
            a bruising beauty.
Neti   neti   
             the sages say—
not this            not this—
subtraction building bone,
building a home in me,
            and now again.
S. Robbins, May 20, 2020
