unbolt me

these strangulated traces
are tracks of your shoelaces

please, take off your shoes
step on me barefoot,
please, let yourself sink
in my moist quicksand

soles can’t protect souls
solemn rites can’t fill these holes

close your eyes and ooze,
feed a wizened root,
fill each and every chink
of your cradleland

unsoled, but not unsouled
unsolemn, but not unsolved
