your power is

telling the story

of the demise of happy empires and sexy lovers

or the birth of legend the birth of love

the feelings all of us didn’t know we could feel

while your characters and subjects

your heroes and your lovers

your dancers destroyers makers

were so down in it they could not feel

the lessons being learned

the fates being followed

as they happened



this is power

like some massive all powerful stomach

churning and mixing

making connections between the things no one sees

providing the only nutrition

that is truly human

to all of us humans

the ability to feel what others feel

like some kind of optical instrument

that is both microscope and telescope on demand

providing the only vision

that is truly a sight worth seeing

the ability to understand
