She Digs

She digs and she dredges,

burrows deep into the stink of soil

tossed over mouldering arguments.

She roots and rummages

claws up old bones to chew

wrenches redundant words

buried danger deep in

the moulding miasma of mayhem

history that haunts

horrors horded

she uncovers it all.

she recants and retraces

she recovers and replays

in a million different ways

She digs,

she digs,

she digs.
