Know when you are
still clinging to the placenta.

Know when you are spent.
so stop uprooting the ground
after you’ve already sifted through dirt
for potatoes.

Know when your blood turns to vinegar
in their presence
your pH scale needs tuning
your music will play anyway.

Know there are mushrooms in your bedroom
their company itself a
litnus test for your equinomity
with the universe.

Know when you are ripe
content; and know very well
that you will be digested
and so drip slowly

Know when you are drying,
dying, aching, shrinking
and rush back home to water yourself
with the attentive eyes and hands of
your mother.

Know when you are already dead
by lands and by rivers
you never wanted to be.
Open your mouth
and ask for tickets elsewhere.
you will be given a way out,
I promise.
