Forgiveness To imagine another life to dream of another reality is to exist When Eve ate the apple she committed the biggest sin of all a woman proclaiming her existence A woman longing for something else.

On a stage under the big top in another time, you gargle fire and spit flame like a dragon, raised me from the nest, from the egg like another beast of the hearth cradled and kindled that feral spark inside kissed brimstone into my heart. They’ve tried for a century and a half to tame me – to quell that thing like hellfire in our bones – but the world is our billows and it’s puffing sulphur, the laugh of the witches grinning from the stake. They can’t command fire, can’t tame the destroyer can’t still the wild dancing kicks of licks of flame, can’t extinguish heat – we’ll keep burning like the sun – can never control the dragons Because, Mum, the wild in my eyes is the wild in yours.
