A Closer Look - Poem by Shannon Hogan

I am the bronze stallion that towers over her dark places
Places I would rather pass on speaking life to
let alone reminisce
I wake up every day and give a French kiss to my lover named life
I giggle because close by are life’s piss stains and I will be greeted by them when I exit my home
Because you see once my day starts I am tested
I am tested by those who see the power in me and those who haven’t taken the moment to look
Although I am pretty much a open book and I am indeed
Complex
When you open my pages you may have to catch your breath
I am lifted
Because I have been anointed
I am here to do all that my Father has ordained
You may sit and wonder
I study myself daily
I love all my quirks
The things that I work to define
The attributes ill never change
For they define me
I may not be what is considered “main stream smart”
But I am wise
An analogy about me that comes to mind:
I cannot tell you how to construct the temple wall but I bet I’ll be the first to paint them
Just take…
A closer look
