That one moment when I choke
the fury and scrape away

layers of perceived slights, when
I am focused and unburdened

when I am free of toxins and
conspiring lies and see unbiased truth

Inside that vial of awareness, I realize
how I engineered all of this. The medal

of blame hangs from my neck, not yours.
I can finally reckon with your silence,

accept our estrangement and allow
myself to inhale the memory of you

Stripped of selfishness, I embrace
the totality of your gift to me

Such moments must be hunted
but I cherish them. How could I not?

You rearranged me. You are the
creator of this evolved man

Your language beats in my mind
Your visage blinks in my veins

Don’t stay gone
