I will emerge

I will emerge as myself

out of the trauma

of the jostling pack,

and lift my eyes to another

place of being where

I am subject and not subject.


I will say that this is my space alone

and yet I need the other to be me

in this place so defined by belonging

where I lost myself whole but

now in my emergence I find me in a new home.
