Phoenix

This piece appeared in the first and only issue of Mosaic: A Magazine of Arts, Sciences & Everything in Between, which evolved into this website.

I have conceded.
I am defeated.
I have been burned to the ground.
Every last pound
of putrid flesh
has been turned to ashes.
Nothing is left
but fragmented flashes
of a life of discontent.
But I am not done,
I am not spent.
I will rise like a phoenix
from the charred remains,
a fire of new intensity
burning in my veins.
I will increase my extensity
and push for new gains.
I will grow strong,
and engulf the world in my flames.
