Demurrer

Permission
And you don’t need it
Rocket fuel, though
For out-of-this-world ideals
Owned by idealistic men
Courageous ones with gall
With a willingness
To join hands with the Other
To answer
To make an admission, but never concede
Human

I Human

I will sing praise regardless
To that kindred spirit
To her brilliant eye
I pray for her wings and her joy

May she remain unguarded
Surrounded in friendship
Surrounded by love
Unyielding in ferocity
