The centre of your gut
is a porous rolling marble.
You’re terrified that it will splinter
when it circles out of balance,
crashing your walls. But it will not.
You’ll let the water through, but you won’t melt.
And you will sit here,
but you won’t sink.
The centre of your gut has tiny doors
for all the light.
