|Futures (CAI 2019)|
The burden of the futures keeps my head heavy with pressure, my heart heavy with knowing, my self heavy with fear and a poignant attachment to beauty. Finding my lightness requires feats of strength. Keeping my focus requires will mustered from depths that scrape nasty scars on the wall of my stomach, down the length of my nerves, through the pores of my skin.
I breathe in light. I breathe out knowing. I leave it hanging in the air and try to pretend it isn't there.
