A POEM X

Some poems come in like giving birth
gestation and pain brings joy, dynamic
morning shadows move light around
as the wind combs the leaves, lyric energy
borrowed and exchanged from ages
hours in preparation of parting, words
stretch the cervix, open tropes, imaginary
devices meet in new syntax, sense of
bold nexus, to push, letting everything go
in total, absolute, poetic, exhaustion.
