A Poet’s Release

Unraveling words

that speak, an exhalation

that saves me before

suffocating in the thick

folds of life…what 

I can’t escape becomes

like woolen drapes

enclosing a cramped space,

and I stare into 

that darkness

until some part of me breaks,

a release that pulls

me out into the airy

translucence of sun

where all poetry breaths.
