ending and beginning

We all get a chance
to reinvent ourselves
daily, even
and in this time, this loop of a year
where the ending and the beginning are so close
and touch
the snake begins eating his tail
here, at this place, this crossroads
we shed our skin
to grow glistening scales
anew
and in this place
our seedpods might open
and cast out
our promise,
that the wind
may carry
us, this part of ourselves
far
and away.
