Let him meet emotion

Let him face torment and destruction

And the looming mast of death

*

To find a home, let him tail and track hardened courage

See it guide him to a sunset bursting with sweltering heat and drug-induced colours

*

Watch him from afar as he greets the ocean

With ice in his eyes and veins

*

When the waves crash and wash over him

Inspect his skin for the trace and taste of the salt you can also feel burning beneath your own skin

*

Admit that no part of yourself is as free as the one watching him watching a bird staring at the moon

That no light shines brighter than the glimmer of honesty and truth

In the eyes and spewing from the mouth of the one you love

*
