the way home

these words whispered to the coursing winds like dust blown clear across the plains landing in foreign fields settling at the roots of giants scuffed onto the hoof of the great white beast and all at once every particle’s sacred every being sees it’s self in your eyes …you lay down your guns The past…

Autumnal Lament

I can’t say what made me go out in the woods that day, barefoot and without my glasses. It was nearly dawn and the fog still lingered in the cove. The ground was covered in pine needles, soft and damp on my feet. I broke form a clearing to find what had been calling me.…

freedom

She wears a mask …to present herself to the world…. Devil prone and prostrate before the thousand eyes watching, pining for weakness in a desperate attempt to squelch their own.
