Unlace the corset around your heart
slowly loosening each lace
letting love profuse barren spaces
seep into channels
trickle slowly
be patient with a heart taking life and space into itself
the boning surrounding you
held you upright
kept you safe

unlace the corset
no matter how beautiful it is
or how well it holds a shape
you wanted to be
but never were
you are bigger

Let loose the torrent within you
but slowly
loosening the corset lacing
let it fall only open only
when your warmth
your life
can hold you
