Tar Baby

Reach in
deep into the sap of me
until you find a piece of amber
fossilized by the heat seeping off
the magma of unerupted fury
that runs beneath the silent, tectonic pressure
of stress-taut muscles and fear clenched teeth.

Reach in 
until your arms are lost 
up to the elbows
in my darkest self and strangest secrets.

Reach in 
and close your eyes
until you know me without them.
Sight will only blind you 
when you're seeking in the dark.

Reach in.
Burn yourself on the worst of me,
then heal,
and never let me go.
