Day 325
4:30 pm

three more for G

1. theory

introduction to you –
actor, chain-smoker, all-night-long-
living at grandma’s old house –

the meeting of a blind girl and
a mother’s worst checklist


2. practice

you fight with me by listening,
your wings won’t budge

you insist on laughter, your wings
point out my wings

you fly alongside me without notice,
your wings are real



3. anyway

We are of the age when we arrive,
having trudged through pock-marked
paths, flecks of unfinished longing
and open wounds smattered about us

The folding of my tales into your
shoulder, the exchange of these truths,
is how you allow me to come to you
with all of my heart, the gift of an
entire, unconditional self
