Loose your need to be right.
Get up and devour your I.
Step out of your mind.
Come clandestine as light,
through your one only fear.
Release your fire. Hurry,
violets crush at my thighs.
Quit your uniform of ice.
Undo that web of stones
closing tight around you.
Don’t — don’t think twice.
Don’t carry your flame
to its dust this time.
Give it to its want
if it’s something human.
Give it to the wind
no one needs to own
or name.
Leave it in the wind
no one ever tamed.
