shelby coming ’round the mountain

i look forward to august, upon
the year of writing practice at its anniversary

this literary journey has been space and license
to play and perform aspects of my make up
that were shamed into a dark room

still not clear about the corners and furniture
that lay the dark room
but the toys and trinkets retrieved
from this play have been plenty illuminating

“mirror, mirror on the wall,
who is the fairest one of all?”

“it is you my lady
when you seek your Child
in the forest

when you run to free the Child
and nurture her awakening from
the cultural slumber of unrequited love

you see rightly
you see faire.”
