Beast of Burden

Gentle Beast by julie hollis

for beast so
unruly,

i’m more furry
and docile

than wild
child,

more protective
wrapping than
fists out
bully..

a burly brat so
baked and
full of

magic beans..

i like to sprinkle a
touch of soft
talk..

in
with
my mean.

Different Skies

you spurn the martyr
in my fight,

and the sparrow for
its gift of
flight,

but you won’t release
old kites to
brighter
skies

we reel through
life’s frames,

through own
eyes,

neither right nor
absolute

yet, we’ve boiled
our worth
down

to lies and
truths.

..at least that’s one heavy heart’s truth.
