                                               How many bodies are in your body?
                                              How many people are walking inside of you,
                                                         demanding your attention?
                                              How many bodies are lying dormant;
                                             Who, when you are at peace, slither
                                             like a hungry snake and torment your peace?
                                            How many bodies have you buried in yourself? 
                                            Shallow graves that you stumble on from time to time,
                                            that you cease to acknowledge because you are "over it."
                                            They need a proper burial.  Can you offer them that? 
                                           Or do you like to remember them? Is that how you punish yourself, 
                                                       to remind yourself: never again?
                                                        Why won't you let them go?
                                           Why don't you cleanse your mind, your body, your spirit
                                                  of the carcasses that you've collected.
                                           You have too many spirits inside of you. 
                                                             Unfurl your grip.
                                                       "Drop a name in the water.
                                                               And another.
                                                               and another.
                                                                and another."*
                                                            Be empty of them.
                                                             Be full of you.
                                                                        Let them go.
