in this ever unfolding expansion, I’ve glimpsed

the beauty of unbecoming each of my former selves

(in all their absurd, eagerly distinct separateness)

that I might strip away the comparisons between them

and in doing so, allow all of them to exist

in unison

all at once

to grant permission to all of me

that I might be at home with myself

in the exhilarating discovery of all that she is

in this present nowness
