Amnesia

Spring has spoiled in the heat

and sweats now lubricating my catharsis.

I have nursed far too long deep within

amnesia

this tunneled wood

and must rise now as even reluctant spirits do

when they go up to judgment.

I will not be food for birds.

I await some final surge,

some deafening crack of the whip,

then I will leave my larva past

and will name my wings Amnesia.
