Halcyon surrender

Just words in a song?


poems lit from the inside?

with a sigh or a moan


that thunders its refusal

to be caught by skin


to be bound by bone

such fragile shelter


shaking in the wind

shaking in the wind


A wolf would blow it down

so bring him the lamb


Bring him the lamb

a trembling mess


Or let him inside

to rip the skin


to gnash the bone

befriend the thunder


To do what he’ll do

to take what is his

I make lists in my head
When I cannot sleep from being

From everyone
All the time

The first list includes
Halcyon days before I was
Tied down
And what I loved about them

The second
A list of now and
The people I adore

But which one is better
Is only dictated by
My own perception
And I fall into
A fitful slumber
