Water over Skin

water flows, encircles
washes and renews
(my skin)
retrieves an understanding
memories from without
(my senses)
whirlpools unrestrained
unrestricted and entwine
(my mind)
rushing up against the shoreline
maintain a silent rhythm
beating skins of time
of hands
and face
and feet
in ceremonial washing
of pain
and shame
and violence
overwhelming sounds of drumming
demand relief
(my tears)
