Your Destination Is On The Left

A poem of abdication

I have reached an age where my heroes have become human.
There is a softer kind of magic to believe in now —
That a body can bend
That a heart can turn sour but ripen again
That friendships are meandering, and loyalty
sometimes means dormancy and patience.
