it is such a relief

to offload the halo

even Baudelaire's

friend rejoiced at

losing his in the muck

of raging horsedrawn


it is such a relief

to be able to go

where you want and not be recognized

and thus pinned to

the board of gossip like a specimen

no the halo was vain

but true radiance is not

yes such is the relief when one

no longer has to be wants others
want one to be...
