Light–A 2011 New Year’s Wish

the better to see
my dears
doors and third eye
closets and soul
remove spider webs
from heads
and hearts
unwrap fears
and fly

(From Allegories of Altars, We Inhale Press, 2008)

    Yes, fly up real high in the sky; where birds dare not glide; but in your heart I feel a sigh…now that you would rather live than die>
