One hand folded into another

You find value in my deficiencies, and fullness, in my vacancy. You find stability in my inconsistency, and bliss, in my melancholy. You find fortitude, in my frailty, and competence, in my inability. You find seriousness, in my buffoonery, and clarity, amidst my perplexity. You find exquisiteness, when I feel ugly, and offer hope, to […]

Messages in Dreams

With my turns and twists, I submit, those sayings, and signals, and all the intimates. Those side shifts, and arches of spine, that project thoughts out, that bounce back, to you.
