I tell myself
survived another day
not good to pencil your life away
yet
distant car passenger
awkwardly eating cake
doesn’t fit in til
escaping you
walk liberated down busy Xmas streets
everyone’s got someone
you’re careful in invisibility
belonging to the still of night
licking fur in wrong direction
silence is your friend
when people form behind festivities
like badgers forage for scraps
you race
in the setting silver line of waking dream
belonging to those who
take their skates to frozen pond
wondering how many turns they can have
undisturbed

  1. Beautiful and powerful writing, leaving room for the reader to go there, to interpret, to visualize what was likely too quickly read. These require more than one reading and my words are not sufficient to express the magnitude of your talent. Thank you for sharing your gifts. I will read these again and again….that is the respect I have for you and which you so deserve!
