In this season of the descent
Where Innana gets hung up on a meat hook
in the underworld
(in an attempt to aid her sister)
whittled down to nothing
no arms or legs or head- just a trunk
And isn’t that just it….
Our besties do this whittling
although we truly wish they wouldn’t
sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, friends, spouses
taking away what isn’t me.
So much baggage,
so much dross.
