After Comprehension

by Linda Fuller

I want to stand beneath you
catch and absorb
the detritus you drop
from your mind and heart
pile it up
let it heat and steam
so I may composthend you

Nice one Linda. Had to look up the word 'detritus.' Glad I did, and well applicable to the inspiration,,,message here. I like the other surprise word here too: composthend. It's fun to create new words. Kudos!

What could be a deeper method of understanding than this elemental deconstruct. Very nicely done!
