Shines

Shines

Pull a blanket of loneliness around you
Around you in your head
A blanket’s a blanket anyway
A diamond is a rose
Is a ring left by the river bed
Instead

If a poet can’t burn
With the fire of
A thousand hungry swords
And turn into dust
The pain
Of where that many broken rivers led
To merge with the sea

O creative shaman
O jokerman
To the one who shines inside of thee
