Hold Fast

Shall we adapt then, 

you and I, 

and bloom in the quiet fright of the dark? 

Let us learn from our sisters 

the cactus lilies, 

who open their petals 

in the cool desert air

‘midst deathly howls and last rites. 

How gracious, how unsurprised. 

Theirs is a vibrant fortitude. 

Ours the same if we hold fast. cactus lillies
