In The Second








After the decision,
the irrevocable desire
to change your life

You must know:
you cannot settle
for the doubtful honor

Of remaining
merely passive,
a unit among humans

You get up,
and walk away;
leaving all those traps

Coming out unscathed,
as if love were just born

And the disordered world,
a clot of blood:
pulsing against this very moment
