history (a-side)

to sidle through time
desirous of soaring

to maneuver,
dreaming of leaping

to roar,
longing to sing;

possessing
lionhearts in leopard skins,

slinking like satin gowns
down the body
of history– cloaking,
conforming to shape
and style–

my identity:
the tempest confined by the teapot,
a wolf in softest fleece–
a furnace in a flickering eye
