When Leaves No Longer Fly

flying. twirling


i morphed into the leaf fluttering past me

floating like a majestic being.


a path of their own making.

this is Me.

an Explorer voluntarily ripped from home-

that base no longer a sanctuary

roots crumbledrotten.

The Departure an experiment in joy.

Despair creeps,

jumping from cloud to wind

skateboarding behind my Leaf.

it lands on Me

my Twirl transforms into Tornados.

boldness of being Blackagenderqueer

stripped of Safety,

for my happiness harrows.
