Fire Inside: Poem

I’m not sure I’m done with this poem, but in the spirit of entering the discomfort zone, I’m ready to share it. 

This is the first poem I wrote after a decade of ignoring the voices that anted me to write.

I dreamed parts of this poem. It called to me in my sleep like words through the smoke.

Fire Inside

by Cherri Porter

you too can

set time aflame

and seed this dirt
