the hunt for halo

written for a friend.

chest’s chains are
same heavy
hold,

concrete thinking has
on creative soul,

but we’ve gained the years
and teeth to chew
us through
steel,

e’en with petals curled
too shy to feel the
fucking thing
,

and when you can’t tell
floorboards from
the ceiling,

it’s through those
gates life’s most
revealing.
