Healing

Now that the bleeding has eased

And the knives have been sheathed

We may heal

You and me

Us

May mend and grow

Learn anew

With wobbly knees

How to walk again

Without crutch

Without clutch

We will learn

As you

As me

Separate

Like parts of half diced centipede

Two

That were once one

One bleeding thing

Now beginning to heal.
