POEM: "Many Times Did I Slip Through"

"Many times did I slip through"

Many times did I slip through
cave slot a just-delivered thought
back bearings in the old dryness
and I even once believed I'd stay
in the thousand years of pain
in animal bones & faint paintings
ten thousand years fast in the rock
a new shadow on old shadows

living a little show of fire
as I watched me dying.
