Reclaim My Being

jungle: reclaim
my being 

don't die in the concrete jungle. steel
and glass don't reconstitute. there

are no gentle rains to feed your
bones, canopy shade to cool

your soul. cast temporal worlds aside.
dance talisman steps, shaman you;

walk barefoot on soil. face skyward.
sleep wide-eyed and fearless.

you are past. I am present. I am
begging the vines of your rapture.
