Make of your life a palimpsest.
The easiest way to begin
is to burn all your regrets
and move to a foreign land.
During the journey, scrape the depths
of yourself, scrape them free
of old fears. When the text
of your days has been scratched
clear of past remorse,

you can begin
to write your life anew.
