Black Bird (poem)

Black bird in my head’s corridor,
unlatch from your grasp the scroll
of my old life story—I’d like for it to
Begone!
like bygone wooden clocks
that fly in a straight path towards Sun.

Black bird, exit through my crown
chakra and transmogrify into a blue jay,
Ascend as high as you can, until you become sky.

And as soon as you reach Venus, transmute
to a phoenix. You’ll become but a star to me,
a luminous ghost of my past that no longer
haunts
me.
