Walking Toeless

Stone by stone you kill me. 
Petal by petal I die -

holding a scalpel 
to unwrite my name. 

Violence 
erupts among words. 
A temple breaks. 
O Goddess! Don't cry beyond silence. 

The infant's milk 
spills in darkness. 
Antiquity raises a wall 
around the mother. 

I am vanishing now, 
freezing my assets.
