Hello 🙂

This foray came to me while pondering ‘balance’ in my journal:

Person on a tight-rope over a canyon


Which scale should I measure from?

What fool would proclaim balance –

In any form –

Lives here?


This photograph is propaganda:

There’s no telling where our minds were

When we posed for this.


A decade ago

Was a different skin.

It began to peel

As my stitches healed.


Those surgeons pulled out multiple lives;

Sliced through more than meat.


The scar is growing fainter,

Subsumed by metamorphic grace.
