To hollow out this time
cut nerves that dangle
roots exposed, open
a space once filled
with contradictions
of feelings, liberate
from anxiety, sever
so many knots, pluck
out the embedding
discover the hole
beneath layers
sediment of trauma
to release memory
of future lives
see events to come
stepping from a train
into a green village
of warm embrace
faces never met, friends
waiting in a virtual scape
knowing the hour of
your eminent arrival.
