We’d Catch Fire – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Your worst battle is between what you know and what you feel.” Alex Haditaghi

We'd Catch Fire

As darkness lights the way
we feel through shattered moments 
to a truth that only comes from a 
gut-felt savvy, an innocent insolence
of present mood over mind that
matters in knowing connections
so deep, transcending the rational,
suspending the ignorance of cheap 
common sense that we might just
rise above the cold data and create
sparks of world so alive to each 
other, we'd catch fire.
