I’ve always been a Phoenix. From earliest incarnations, scared the begeezus out of myself with random flight.
I became more an engine with every reinvention and rebirth,
scattering ashes to wind and spitting out
a riot of revision,
uprisings amongst embers,
Darling, I’ve always been abominable from outside but
imagine how I feel, exploding to just fizzle again;
a gift which feels more burdensome with every beginning.
