Take a little, take a lot
And in this synchronization spot
We’ll trade speckled bruises and inspect freckles
Birthmarks.

Cut this red tape that’s got you wrapped up
Mummified babe, a sacrificial lamb
Jump off that altar into the grass
Freedom.

Accidents drawing two together
Seeming mistake after mistake, by crucible
Proved to be galaxy-weaved destiny
Fate.

Kick off those shackles, leaving the chains in the laurel
Stretch out those feathers and flex those wings
Love, fly up and up and chase the stars
Sweetly,
Softly.
