You are not at all like my rose," he said. "As yet you are nothing. No one has tamed you, and you have tamed no one. You are like my fox when I first knew him. He was only a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But I have made him my friend, and now he is unique in all the world.


writing this poem
is like sprinting
through
wild land
vines and burs
grasping for me,
but i’m already gone
moving like
a dancer
a panther
this immortal being
flying past human
conciseness
till i’m
oh so slowly
consumed
by Those
higher than myself.
when my sight
becomes Theirs
i see the past
as it was
in the beginning
before i
started running
with Them
as one
we ran
and through Their
sight i saw
where i was going
once hidden
by that blood-red mask
of flesh and hate
but They
in Their gentle might
severed the ribbon
that held that
mask to face
and i to that
wild, wild land
with those
vines and burs
grasping, but
alas!
We’re already gone
