to disarm the catcher in the rye in me ................................................



photo by Edward Rinaldi 





one must 
become taken 
with one's self 
so completely 
as to surrender 
one's spirit 
or core human
to a heart(h) 
tendered 
with ferocity 

for this act 
begets life 
mine/yours 
to us each 
we get 
an ever more 

we practice arts 
and kind minds 
to combat
the mirror mirror 
tricks of fear 

as it 
becomes 
clearer 
and clearer 
the nearer 
we are 
to disarming 
ourselves 

fear doesn't like 
letting 
the world 
grow wild 
all around 
and inside 
us again
