Transitions

– From Metaphysical Balm, by Michèle Betty

for Marina

Can you live on another plane,
incarnate,
soul travel to a different dimension,
transmuted?

Can you edge out your physical pain,
in a metaphysical world?
Dare you message us
through a medium, shaken?

Are you beset by
ghouls and gargoyles,
beasts baring themselves
out of a fevered ferment?

Or, can you transition
effortlessly, through
a celestial light
towards a haven, heaven bound?

And, can you do all this, child,
lying wrapped in your percale cotton cocoon,
my hand lying heavy
on the nape of your fragile neck?
