Prescribed Burn


It’s there (still), but 
(buried deep
beneath day-to-day detritus, frag-
ments, debris, meaning-
less details;) you
need to
dig

Inhale
(hold golden oxygen
deep inside thirsty lungs,
flood sun- starved pulmonaria,
purge weeds, preparing soil
for better seeds)
dig deep

Exhale
(anger, frustration, imp-
atience – deep into ozone to be
banished, ignited, consumed –
a controlled burn, making space
for new growth; seek sprouts)
dig deeper
