226161 miles











how do we quiet inner whispers of dissent & anger
rising
rising
to greet days crinolined & perfect
clouds streaming 'it's a wonderful life' life life
leaves of the porcelain berry tremble tremble
august carves out the hollow places and stirs it with a wooden spoon
ancient
and
smelling of
pollunating corn
and
raw vanilla
apply pressure to the open wounds of sorrow & longing
apply pressure
and
press to the
light
sunlight
rising
rising
to
quiet
quiet
as evening approaches …
