The Excavation

standing on my grief

old bones in the ancient pit

my countless bodies

broken and tossed carelessly inside

covered in lime

unacknowledged

until

now

that I have excavated them

I weep

for the torn and bloodied pieces

for the interrupted meanings

for the lost possibilities

for the experiences of lost hope

for the utter useless wastefulness

of all that human anger and

hate and

violence

spewed onto one person’s life …

enough to fill this ancient pit full

with all these corpses.

– Able Boodha
