Tayve Neese: I believe in chakras

spinning over hearts,
genitals,
 
I believe bee dances
make them diminutive 
 
cartographers,
 
our dead appear as scent
to attend their funerals,
 
tankas and sonnets
are a species of orchid,
 
trauma lodged in DNA
will become an echo,
 
mercy is a snake’s skin
left for us to borrow.
