What went before

What went between

What went around

What went above

What went contrived

What went controlled

What went inspired

What went

where?

What does it mean

that you wander through those hills,

hide between the rocks and burrow under roots?

What does it mean

that you listen to the birds,

head cocked in concentration for their words?

What does it mean

when your eyes turn to the peaks,

houses and humanity left behind your mind?

What does it mean

that spaces stretch to pain,

hubris becomes agony and no one is the same?

The label on the bra

reads “Keep away from fire.”

Is this a warning against

flames of excessive passion,

self-immolation, or

metaphorical representations

of feminist independence?

Is it better

to write one poem

each day

for 365 days,

or to spend

365 days

writing

one poem?
