Photo of read flowers with white text over the top reading: ‘Unearth / Pushing daisies through my gut / ‘Til they see the other side / I relinquish what’s not mine / Not my time / Yet, how deep I can churn / Spilling coffee grounds / Bitter soil, damp and granular / Speckled nothings / Fragrance always reminding me / Of memories I wish I’d shed / Wet sediment caked under fingernails / Cementing crevasses that I’m yet to find / Neglected seeds in forgotten bed / I’ve outgrown my head / And my sandpapered skin has worn / Thin, topsoil loose enough / To vanish in the wind’.

‘Unearth’ by Alicia Salvanos
