mapping (Day 5, NPM)


mysterious heart
a metaphoric map to the origin of ourselves

more than what makes us who we are.
rather the arc of our peoples
back and farther still
before the luxury of written language
before the conquest of culture

a story embedded within cell walls
forged at the epicenter
the universe expanding at each breath
people surviving
despite the lack of answers

surviving because we must,
because everything before us says
we must.
