born again


I am born to be a poet.


And a poet tells the Truth:

The truths we know but have forgotten

The truths we know but do not want to know

The truths we know and didn't know we knew,

but whose revelation makes us


with recognition

the same way we will weep

when reunited

with the Mother

from whom we were stolen


at birth.
