    Paligenesis
    for me was as difficult
    as giving birth the first time
    A lexical nativity that was
    pure and faultless
    as the cleanliness of
    my own spirit dies to
    live as....

    I had bore witness to words
    that eye could write
    and they were accentually -- syllabic
    they were
    deep ... they came alive on the
    page and breathed 9 lives
    back into me
    this poetical language I played
    with until the age of 29
    and I reared it
    as it developed me
    like a post modern sunset
    that draws shadows
    just beneath the sky....

    I turned thirty and questioned
    my own ability to perfect the
    imperfections of rudimentary poetry
    ... the words stopped breathing
    life into me, the proses ceased
    to grow and receded to their
    infancy

    Retraction, retreating
    withdrawn from believing
    that my text and I
    had been divided by the spaces
    between each letter...

    We no longer were a
    union that would
    think similar thoughts
    or view the same sameness as
    satisfaction savored the
    guilty thoughts
    of literary works that
    flee from my sight

    And when I have trouble
    writing or when I am
    plagued by that thing
    called writer's block

    I know it is because
    my words and I have
    been separated
    ... Separated at verse

    and flow poetry in motion
