Poetry from The Well

To Be Honest

To write in words what

your body’s been whipping down

for years takes

a spark

brighter than your

most shimmering thoughts

 

You can throw corn in a pan

and it’ll pop into something

new, crisp and sweet,

the tough shells gone

 

One day you may find

in the dry pages of

a book

a string of words

that hook

and tug out your

flailing

secret

– gasping in its last breath –

and after that nothing’ll

look the same anymore
