Maybe it takes a poet to say
there’s a place beyond experience that is innocence
William Blake, Paradise Regained
but there’s a poet inside you.

Child, angel, animal
there at the periphery of your vision
walking beside you to guide you
mercurial, shape-shifting anywhere…

creature of metamorphosis,
telling you what you need,
and with a gift to prove it.

Who is this being ?
Neither stereotype or archetype,
perhaps the most radical part of you.

Close your eyes.
The path leads in front of you,
and there’s no going back.
