Fate To Recall

Life on the fringes

ignoring your pain

 words were my fortress

again and again


Riding the fence line

fixing the wire

judgment expelling

intruders and liars


Distance and loneliness

harken and call

wisdom and certainty

fate to recall


One final time

to emerge from my cave

bandage your heartache

—myself I then save


(The New Room: April, 2022)
