Hulling the Past

there's something
satisfying
gratifying
about stripping
away husks
all that seared promise
gone to seed
negating the need
for vanquishing thirst
with each rustling peel
dead cell pellicles
shucked
discarded
parchments
flayed
with the whip-stitch
of sacrifice
rendered to dust
all this
tugging
ripping
satisfying
gratifying
to at last,
see the silk
