From My Anthology Rebel Rose titled Rebel Rose

Taught to comply,

Gone off

To the other side.

 

The edge felt,

Ride through

Thorn patches.

 

Soft petal an

Afterthought,

Positioned

Opposite

A rising bud.

 

Sunlight fractured,

Moon drip captured,

Flown to

Sky bent over

Brazen earth.

Barbie Girl

Strawberry kiss,

Latent mystery

Underneath.

 

Glittering eyes,

The hidden

Universe

Swirling.

 

Walking on tall

Legs,

Secret thoughts

Brewing.

 

Something lit in

Long finger nails

Reaching,

The desire for

Dreams

Accruing.

Woman

Are they ready,

Her solitary journey

Unfolded,

Dangerous fumes

Spreading

Across the Earth.

 

Search for the

Elixir,

Thrown to the

Bulleting flames.

 

On a speeding

Track,

World unfurling,

Shadow story.

 

Alone until death,

The resting place

Looming,

Light unto light.

 

Passage granted,

Can the people

See,

A walk for the

Tired path

They tread.

 

Nothing given,

A chase to the

Illustrious

Steeple,

Fallen for

The sake

Of their freedom.
