Sarah Grothus

Switch fingers
Switch faces
Switch bracelets and races

Choose shoes
Or choose boots
Choose fairytales or fingernails

Pick throats
And pick pain
Pick poop and the brain

Turn into flesh
Turn into trees
Turn into wisdom underneath

Enter darkness
And enter fears
Enter purities and enter tears
