Fred Slusher

I am not your token,

your adventure.

Not your unchained melody or

your liberation.

I am not a bird, 

not a phoenix;

not a city on a hill or an empire.

I am a glacier and an iceberg and an avalanche:

I dig and collide and tumble through 

crowded nebulae to reach 

my own soul.
