There is a healing for some
to read those poets whose words
are dipped in emotion…
baptized in the fires
of long… long ago
… kindled to blazing
and dulled to ashes
by the truth in their words
There is a healing to read poets words
… poets who know the way home…
allowing brothers to hitch rides with them
Delivering them safely…
with hearts far less scarred…
