I am a Wild Slowness

Ben Graham

I am a Wild Slowness
I am a wild slowness
Sparkling like iron
In the furnace of life;
Flowing like earth
On a scale you cannot see.

I am a violent ballet
Danced behind a curtain
With candescent limbs ignited
By a gaining hot-stringed orchestra
Of muscle, sac and bone.

I am the snug blaze of my heart
where life’s heaping cinders glow.
I feel the things I cannot show;
I hold the things I cannot know.
My wayward steps still find the rhythm
Of a slow and wild soul…
