burden

TE WAIRUA FREE (‘The Free Spirit’)

My spirit needs mending but I have
no coloured thread
to darn these fraying burdens

The eye of this needle lay gaping and empty
and I am standing on its edge ready to fall through;
a knot to my ankle and my fast surrender
and I’ll fly deeply in to weave new dreams:
a fresher self with perfect stitching
– an un-perished disaster –
still surviving in spite of her erupted soul

NOT IMMUNE

i am
tormented
by your need
for distance
but not immune
to this burden
of recapture

THOUGHT #13

The weight of money is unbelievably light compared to the weight of the burden it was designed to carry.
