Wait for her,
and when she arrives
tease her with where-have-you-beens,
cherish her
as you cross cursed thresholds together
-forever and for good.

For, by her, we mean that intuition,
that thinning of the veil
when the lie that kept you
a foot in purgatory, a leg in hell
is suddenly not convincing.

Then when she’s served her purpose,
let her settle in your bones,
build you a better backbone,
breathe your soul back to life.
