  • Holding What Must Be Held August 11, 2020
    Down by the river we sit and talk. When I think I can’t ache any more, the world serves more heartache. And I meet it. I say no, but I feel myself stretched by some great invisible hand, rendering me spacious enough to hold what must be held. When we rise to leave, the river […]

    Tonight Is a Torn Map Tonight is a torn map and the woman is a would-be voyager. Once, she believed there was a path. Now, she believes there are many. Sitting still beside the river, she notices the urge to rise, notices when the urge has passed. Notices it rise again. Being still is one […]
