epic

stand up
stare down
step out
just
like when you opened
their book
their jar
their box
and released
their words
their poison
their power.
the diffused truth
stilled tongues
stalled spaces
sat asses on stools
and you
stretched 
and
stretched
and
stretched
your handhold 
on a comet.
your planted heels,
your leaned back 
and pitch forward,
your allow of
oxygen meet flame,
you watched 
head consume tail,
and you
stretched
and
stretched
and 
stretched
the clay 
of your core,
not man made,
of mother earth
and her hope 
resides
in your grip.
