Only As Sacred

You want to define Poetry, behind the safety of your bars Open the door to your cage, a world awaits, whose feathers tar Dusty journals and how-to books, no longer serve you here The price of your admittance, an acknowledgement of fear With words only as strong as the impression they leave And feelings only as sacred —as memory retrieves (Seattle Washington: March, 2017)
