“When you can look at your life
I don’t care if I get rich, or end up in the gutter.
I don’t care if anyone comes alongside
or thinks I’m relevant.
I will stand here fighting dark things
with my last invisible breath
until I crumble to holy dust
and fall to the earth like
dandelion firework ash,
because this is True.
and what else is there.
From Anthem; or Dance of the Hybris by Shawnacy Kiker
