First Born

I retrieved the unborn
stillness at the core of me.
I chose the drive beyond
inclusion. I knelt

before the fire,
I touched the grate.
I learned my skin.
I chose the limber evidence

I chose the difficult
within the sacramental risk.
I reverted to my soul.
I reached the evidence.

of first feeling. I revered
the last of birth,
I felt included
now and at the hour.
