New Poem: Expose

images

About this time last year I got to see Arlo Guthrie along with my little brother and sister (yes they will always be “little.”)  It is amazing how one little, happy memory can stir it up. It should be pretty obvious I have been in a funk, with at best a post or two a week. But looking back on that evening has been a spark. It reminded me, among other things, that I need to be true to myself. So I keep on writing…

Expose

Go
Now
Hammer
Away on
The high red brick wall
Tear it down piece by stubborn piece

Don’t
Wait
Reveal
What others
Would bury under
concrete and steel and endless dark

Your
flaws
Shine bright
Against the
Shadows of your soul
Deny them and deny yourself

The you not born of assumptions
Of our ignorance
Beautiful
Hidden
And
True
