I am

I’m a poet and a tramp,

a dreamer and just a girl

I am me and I am not

I’m just it, the experience of it.


The all-might-be and a grain

blown away, set for travel by the wind,

a blow and the fire rising beneath

a volcano and lava pouring down hill.


I’m Sicily and I am Greece

I’m the strength that keeps this hand

tightly put on the lines of this script,

I’m not a hint, or a hunch

I’m the air I breathe.

Real to all my bones and skin.

Take my body, drive it safe

to the patchwork land where

Love is the only truth to wrap gently in.
