(From) Scraping to Scalar



The surface was scratched and scraped

but did the opposite of scar.  A revolution was initiated.

As far as scabs go, this one has potential

to leave behind a lovely tattoo

on the inside.  (The wrong side.)

It is an image in the shape of mitosis/meiosis,

as bright as the sun;

soft and smooth as a new leaf…

an appropriate tribute to the unseen.
