Stella Maris

her Achilles heel

is relational

the price of going first

into a new world

a programed necrosis

designed for abundance

this one-way ticket

she is asked to pay

there are spectral others

who know

the truth of flow

filagree antennae

rivulets in a vast stability

and she learns to say “no”

to the frivolous needs

of others as her own

her soul’s mate

will have to wait

having done enough

she leaves below

for above

as she loves

despite a lack

of return

the inner fight

for evolution
