Skin

just a scratch
and the library bleeds
words and sentences fluttering
page by page gushing forth
a gouge or a stab
will yield a hemorrhage
of information,
heavy stacks, puppets,
even CDs,
the weighty atlas strains
on the reading table
with a longing to break
free of the bricks and iron
that hold it in place,
so many maps
and destinations
burgeoning, just beneath the skin


Hi and HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’ve been absent from here for a while now – basking in holiday time and trying to get myself back together when it comes to my creative life. I didn’t write much over the past couple of months, but I’m working on getting the engines fired back up. My first step was to open up a book that has served me well for inspiration for a while. . . . in fact I feel like I have written some of my favorite pieces over the last year thanks to prodding by this book . . . . .

If you are searching right now, I would highly recommend getting a copy. My local library had it, but I found it to purchase because I like to write in my books (and I don’t think the library would appreciate that much!).

Here’s to a productive, joyful, and creative 2022, y’all! Thanks for reading.
