Only As Sacred

You want to define Poetry,

behind the safety of your bars

 

Open the door to your cage,

a world awaits, whose feathers tar

 

Dusty journals and how-to books,

no longer serve you here

 

The price of your admittance,

an acknowledgement of fear

 

With words only as strong

as the impression they leave

 

And feelings only as sacred

—as memory retrieves

 

(Seattle Washington: March, 2017)
