“The Alchemy of Self-Love” by Sumer Cave

If I am an Alchemist
Let me press my palms into the dirt
Let me conjure love
By burying my toes underneath waxy
Rain dropped rose petals
That make love to the worms
And let me set my ear to the earth
And listen as she coos sweetly to the winds
Who in time
Caresses the mountains as they crumble to dust
Creating space for my beating heart
On this celestial plane of reality
