when did


become so beautiful?

ever before, life’s unseen ringmaster

trained me to run between

unpredictable clouds,


striating sharp-stricken lightning

dogging at my footsteps & futures

barking, screaming,




i decided

to own my skin, my soul,


in all colors, errors + weathers

the tempest has changed tempo

now i ride alongside,

no longer swallowed.

i know, now

how to reach into

the howling drumbeats of chaos

and grab new-hatched rainbows,

storm-forge my own tarnished silver linings,

even if broken, abused fingers

are too numb to feel them

they unspool from


half-forgotten inside me

i seize hold of my wonder

and cast it out into the world
