Homecoming

I undo all the doing

all the twining of threads

that bound me in systems

never designed to set free


One at a time 

I unpick the knots

tied by 

school, church, TV

Lovers, friends, family


I release myself from all structures

that held my power down

so skilful in their construction 

invisible to the trained eye


so I un-train my gaze

un-civilise myself

excavate deeper and deeper

Till I unlearn

till I remember

till I am
