Like a Child You Have Reached Your Destination


Poetry and Audio by:
ANJALI EMSELLEM




like a child you have reached your destination


this is easy
how it feels to race
the meditation

how your herons love
what you insist on for
freedom

i am my child, i desire
to find where I am most gentle
i all we until
free be will

there's a testament
in the nothing
you speak out of

underground is a shadow
to the sex of the first
born

my teenager is there,
coaching the king
to desire this prism,
this ring pop,
this disembodied sovereign,
to study how art stole gold
















there is no defeat in time



six miles in to
the creature of this earth,
a lake,
a pendant in the blood,
i roll water on my knees

in every shower i am lucky
you were not the end,
that there was a water ahead, open
and flickering like an ultrasound,
i hold my hands out

and pray to fill with the fatigue
of wading in the center
of a sun spotted current

i wrote this poem on a lunch bag
as i arrived at the creature’s mouth,
in my delirium i face
a wind with no
dominion
