The Beautiful Light of Burning Bridges

Title piece for my solo show, opening 10/23/2015 at Artistree Gallery–

Walking away
as my irresponsible, bottle rocket heart
explodes,
illuminating a slick, black road ahead,
that might or might not
have been flooded entirely with tears.
Washed over by detonations,
at last louder
than the repetitive drums of memory and shame,
the noise is an immense release.
Gold and orange sparks sequin
the sky,
the trees,
the puddles,
my eyes,
that flash now with joy as well as rage.
Burning bridges blaze with such a
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful
light.
