The Thin Thread of Truth


There's a thin thread of truth
that ignites my body
into fire

It dwells in my belly
and roars up my spine

It grabs hold at my throat
rolling flames over rhymes

It makes me speak
out of turn
and walk 
out of line

It has a single anchor
to my heart
running wild

There is no perfect dance
with its flame
divine fire

Rather …

It is a deep shake

a belly ache

a leap of faith

a swallowing of heat
at the feet
of Desire.
