‘You Say It’s Your Birthday’

redcandle

A
double-edged sword,
these celebrations/realizations.
Ambiguity.
Notching circuits of the sun,
how many crosshatches
on the final tally?
However . . .

Jubilation:)
Unvanquished junket
through the thicket,
‘slings and arrows.’
Victors circle in that very star;
deserving of a ceremony
of self.
