a harsh sunrise

there’s a severity that bores itself

into the belly

a harsh sunrise

it must unravel the threads

of the sky and sea

the golden fold where the two meet

that’s where you choose to

surface brighter

than you’ve ever been

and all the pains from past

brought you success and strength

bled your final mercy

staining scars that led you

to emanate the gray form

a crying silhouette

where a man kneels

emanation in the distance

of a devotion that dies

turn your back

on the estranged daughter

for flowering despise
