‘be the one’

there is beauty to be found submerged in hell
the sizzling kiss of flickering flames
angelic ones with latin names
and souls who have forgotten their own
an errant decision may find you here
actions based upon directions unclear
belligerence over an experiment
that didn’t turn out quite right
relish in the opportunity
to experience existence differently
do not allow yourself to weep
and never play the game
no reconciliation should you expect
nor desire to one so incorrigible
there’s no such thing as a miracle
but tables can be turned
so take your wizened hands
and reach deep down within
unpick the binding knot undone
spread your wings and be the one

[deconstructed version here]
