Wordy ~ #wwwblogs

seeking grace
poise from the page
to translate
the emergent wildness
from an animal
too long tame
swallowing insults
with a smile
and slow forgiveness
I should have
been a fire-eater
a nomad
clad in tattoos
and sweat
a fleeting impression
of place
without identity
a sole mind
seeking
seeking
until the woman
becomes wanderer
pilgrim
transformed

– Caroline A. Slee
