"Regeneration" A Poem By Nattie O'Sheggzy — Pawners Paper

Many times I wonder what side of the tale I am telling. Or if that matters at all. And what wilds Germinate on this arid mountain or next

Words are the tools of a poet; the spells he cast on his wand to work his magic, a soothing medicine that cures a bemused soul, a clarion call out to the nation's lost men,  and a way for a man to tell in parable of his journey and misery. In regeneration, Nattie tells a frolick story, yet such that makes the reader ponder on the contiguous words therein.

Regeneration is like an old language susceptible to each man's interpretation.

I saw you pluck a piece of sapling from the hills
A present, I don't know,
A sun-scorched  story,
                            A tale
A massive ambience of the liquid time.

But the manner you beheld it
Like you could see through its bare bones,
If you lick up the juice, now and then.

Many times I wonder what side of the tale
I am telling.
Or if that matters at all. And what wilds
Germinate on this arid mountain or next.
I know if the air chooses to swim in the ruins
To an unknowable degree—
To mould, to draw, to create.

Now are we the molten brass
Because of the wax around the candle.
