All the Perfumes of Arabia

Out damn spot

When will I become clean?

When will the layers of history caked on my skin wash off?

                          How do I earn the absolution I crave?

Will I ever be whole?

Will my DNA call back into the fold its multitudinal origins?

                          How do I summon you?

Where do I bury this burden?

Where will it decompose into fertile black earth?

                                                                                                                How do I nurture its life spark?
