Ideally I would find myself 
buried in the sand, 
deep in the negev desert. 

I would find myself 
with a layer of skin shed 
like a snake, 
and a gleaming, 
vibrant new one in its place. 

I would fall to my knees and 
throw my hands deep 
into the burning hot sand 
and dig with all my might. 

I would unearth this new me, 
pulling it from the clutches of birth.

I would watch it take its first breath 
and witness the energy of life rumbling through the body.

Then I would lay may head down and sleep, 
happy, knowing I had found me.
