say it with your full chest

& maybe poetry isn’t a thing you devote your life to

   I always knew love was fleeting
      I just never expected the real thing
to jump out of my closet

       suddenly my heart burst wide open
   I’m still battering hatches
   reaching for my staple gun

I am sickened of the dictation
                 I’m a terrible criminal just like the woman in the Bible nO oNe eLsE contributed I realize now I was always on this island alone

           I choose to believe
             in humanity
             because I am
       brave I chose
             to be courageous

                that’s more than I can say any day
         for you
