The Hard Season…

February 6th, 2017

therapythe hard season
split you through,
you will bleed water.

do not worry.

this is grief.
your face will fall out and down your skin
there will be scorching.
but do not worry
keep speaking the years from their hiding places.
keep coughing up smoke from all the deaths you
have died.
keep the tender rage.
because the soft season will come.
it will come.
both hands in your chest.
up all night.
up all of the nights.
to drink all damage into love.
