Decomposing Revision

I compost.
            Deep pleasure in trash
            In eggshells and vegetable remains
                        Turning into black gold.
Rich soil from our waste
            Feeding my garden
            And my soul.

I revise.
            Deep pleasure in refuse words
            In messy lines and phrases
                        Turning into golden lines.
Rich language from the wreckage
            Nourishing my audience
            And my soul.

I relish decomposition
            The process of breaking down
            The process of fermentation

            The process of turning garbage into glory.
