I hoped in a renewal yet
i found change (to come)
As I passed the time
in nerves frayed and disappointments I lost will and whimsy in the christmases I spent without poinsettias
And yet I lie stuck in the unwanted pondering of another(s) life
another arc of frozen colors and dogged drama pollutes the halo of my current space
but in memories I hold another point of view
That lies dormant in collective ramblings
And waits in spoken sentiments
or is murmured in a quiet room of energies and soul promising a reprieve from
A relief from
the trampling of the abandonment of my defenses
as hostile as a lunatics pretenses
i laughed at the smirking
who has forgotten
the power in cadence
in rhyme and rhythm.
While I wielded sword and word and tongue at the ‘queen’ who had not.
