New Era by Allison Grayhurst

Creative Talents Unleashed

From the start I believed

in never bending, but now I am a weather-vane,

guided by singing.

Now, in movement I grow like a wild weed –

a glutton of untouched terrain.

I have put on the iron mask,

burned my skin for the battles

of another. That shore is sinking

and my globe has altered its axle.

I put away my grown-up philosophy

to live by impulse and the pity of God.

The task is done, the ice is swallowed.

It is time to love the gargoyles and create

a new form of beauty.
