tree roots

how can I unwind
my heart
it's tangle of tree roots

put it out on the table
for you to examine
using words alone?

roots are difficult
deep
not easily exposed

you have to dig for them
work
carefully brush aside

bit by bit of soil, until
slowly
each new bit is uncovered

so if you would have me
quickly
expound my heart in a sentence

I would say, "my road traverses
the world.
come along, physically or spiritually

by the time we reach the end
you
may have exposed the roots."
