Recklessly She Declared Truth

Thank you Davy D at the Go Dog Go Cafe for this morning’s inspiration

recklessly she looked deep inside

saw fire and ice in her heart

smelled iron and copper in her blood

felt moon and ocean tides tug her soul

knew the hum of words

crawling under skin

burning to escape

knew herself a poet

the short shortsightedness

of self-declared authorities

who believed themselves arbitrators

anointed from above be damned

she knew they did not

have the wisdom

the clarity

the passion

to judge

all that she was

truth would be

hers alone to reveal
