Heroine

decorated with shards of past 

narratives smashed,

i assume a stance

of recognition.

nested within 

heartwood

rings

that bring

a clarity of union,

i stand braced in a space

between then and the possible.

where piano wire dizzying, 

sine wave resounding

tear-stained,

paint-streaked scars

are epaulettes of the rising.

releasing my hands,

from the helve

i offer them 

to you.
