No Longer Hot

Is there disappointment in arrival…

anticipation the crown jewel

 

Are the accolades left hollow,

uncertainty what’s new

 

Is acceptance yours or theirs to own,

all badges keyed to lock

 

Does your soul ignite once past the flame

—your words no longer hot

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2017)
