What Can The Center Hold


the small me is wrapped inside the big me
a core keeping me me

it’s full of what I noticed in my childhood
it’s rooted in what I cared about and who I love(d)
the part of me that’s the part of me that’s not parted
still here, necessaries and extras wrapped and seated

apple cores have seeds (we generally throw them away)
paper towel rolls have cardboard cores (we generally throw them away)
same for pineapples and other fruits
the structure and the seed go into the midden
making it a rich and succulent place
