Patriot

I want to take up residence

on the hearth of your heart strings

burning warm

melting ice

On fingertips frozen by bitter

winter’s chill

they thaw with gentle ease as they trace your lines


the soft

the sharp

the jagged


You are a natural wonder

beauty renowned


Grant me citizenship in your country

where they know your love.

I will fight in your wars and protect all

that is you.


Let me call you home

I will swear fealty to the nation of you

go to the trenches for you

wave your flag high

and wear your colors on my sleeve
