Out/One by Mathis Wilde Radke

Out to the middle
Of the web crawled
Hand over hand
Two phobias checked
Having waited on the spinner
To venture out
to a corner
And turn around
The sacred challenged
The unholy championed
At a distance?
In the light?
One skilled and impassioned
Picks up the mantle
And a movement
Lethargic comatose
Or as of yet still without a womb
Undaunted by nothing on tap
for the ivy
