Awakening on Our Rocky Rebel Road

img_4452Sometimes ...
We love living in shadowlands that ride our backs,
pregnant with dream demons and rhinestone illusions ~
On such days we come crashing at the abrading edges
of narrow channels and wide-open oceans 'till we are
caught between moon-sight and sun-gold distortions
Easy then to precipitate bursts of chaos in the
hoary hibernation of our soul’s winter, denying the truth
in our own voices, the god-awful transience of our bodies
Yet here we are ... Yes! Here we are
awakening on our rocky, rebel road ...
serving our spiny poetry like Don Juan his peyote buttons
