Taking Refuge (poem) 

Taking Refuge

We could, of course,
take refuge in the archetypes,
the sons who rescued
the lost princesses
from the tower,
the frogs who claimed
their true identity

Even the bluebeards,
were they so terrible
after all,
perhaps they too were simply
acting out
their compulsions
their need to be

But what of the
the ones who came down
on clouds of gold
bearing the secret relic,
the saving formula?
Who will take their place?

What must we do
to find our lost treasures again,
even if they are no longer visible
or do not have names,
even if they now live only
inside who we have become.
