Within Her Breath

The Muse more than my mistress,

the Muse more than my friend

 

The Muse more than a guardian,

the Muse my blood within

 

She no longer comes to visit,

she only comes to stay

 

Each wish I make, each word I write

—within her breath I pray

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2017)
