The Power

Julia Constantz


I am
the dagger scream
of a dying rabbit
waiting
for the chance.

I am
the mourning
color of glory
dripping
sweaty pulls
of willowmoon.

I am
a mininscule ripple
in twilight's earthen pool
shimmering
an ounce of energy
released.

I am
a word
giving-back
giving-away
taking-what-is-mine.

I
am
NO.
