nature summer yellow animal

A complicated emotion can serve good ends and bad,

reveal the truth of who we are and what

we must have to go on, declare

our refusal to surrender,

even signal our strength, passion

for life, or

it can crowd the space between us

until no one can think straight, only react,

fight back, turning a small thing

into an end-of-the-world scenario.

This poem appears in my new book ROSES IN WINTER.
