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.
