Day 67: axolotl

The NYT published this poem in its Magazine on Sunday, and I just loved it.

   - ire'na lara silva

          little warrior
almost imperceptably
from so much healing
          how many regrown limbs
          how many repaired organs
even precious
     brain tissue
          created anew
teach me this
          little warrior
how you remain
     tender and
          soft and eternal
          in the face of struggle
how is it the healing
     has already begun
          even before the wound
