This poem has to do with a recovered memory of disassociation during a CSA experience when I was 4 or 5 years old.

held down in dirt
against the damp
like tears that bleed
to rise in earth
and saturate
all this in spite
of swing and pull
of planets stars
and moon as mind
and body rip
apart a spir-
it flies to float
upon the smooth
and glistening space

-Brett

I don't know what to say.

This moves me. To tears, yes, but also to realize we did what we did to survive.

Thanks, Brett. You've given me a gift.
