let go

Let every kiss hit the body / like a season.

cloud covers become sun patterns
we react as resistance—
malefic masculinity—and are born again
in times of violence
flash moments designed as destiny
patterns worn translucent
soft and hard (but never loose)
when the middle shifts
the center sways—inertia
