Break a Myth

X

 

What is it to

break a myth?

X

Is it like grinding

steel that  writhes

with angry

spits of fire

at the cut?

X

Is it like taking

off your geranium

red lipstick

leaving a smear

of a  false smile

on your chin and cheek?

Or wiped clean, without

a mark, or a trace

of spent  emotion?

X

Is it like sawing

off a tree trunk

or a plaster body cast

at the waist with a hand

held hack saw?

The tree falls with its boughs

and the body stands

on its own legs?

X

Is it like seizing terror

from your heart- long

cold teeth clawed

into soft pink

tissue? And the shark bite

is a  chiseled lie,

a sliver of fiction?

X

Is it like swallowing

seeds of rose bushes

in the spring time

and slowly feeling the petals

of unfurling pink,

spinning yellow and

kissed red by June?

X

Is breaking a myth

telling the truth?

X

Is breaking a myth

Breathing at last?
