Medea – Dawid Juraszek 

harness a raging fire
arrest a torrent in its rush
bleed the heart of a rock
you can

the gore and the dross
left in your wake
singe as they swell
in the only space there is

flesh blood skin bone
anointed and enhanced
beyond the wine dark sea

you may wish to move on
new life awaiting you
in far away climes
but no.
