Demilitarized Zones

shapeshifting winds

sculpt skin

pressing fingerlings

of mist

to my curved canyons


ebony birds sing

sketching with wings

the worth of me

shimmering rivulets of being

a mirage unsabotaged

by a pearlized sky


for I grow

young and wise

a fruit that ripens

out of sight

if you wish to know

my direction of flow

puncture this still night

and by me

do right


Conviction builds the gold of soul.
