It’s time for me to start writing about whatever I need to. My capital I, it tells me that I may say anything but too limit my words to my truth. In a reflection I find only my image, the rest I impose. Truer I find is my unaltered reaction, unconcerned of social place or dictum to survive. So solidly I find shedding this exterior nightly, that my fears are dowsed, my mind at peace.

Daily I am cajoled into perceived being by my onlookers, my passive confidence a threat. On the verge of death, financial ruin, pointed social shame I feel whole and largely disappointed, my panic button worn out. I can’t run like I used to, can’t keep my trade vocabulary updated with opinions placing me pro or con. I am drawn to ethereal unprofitable notions of which none have time as they hold no stake. Might I starve letting my fear fall? What threat my unconcerned days pose to my fiscal outlook.

Why do I see men on glass-walled ships, screaming their heads off about the drowning of dry land? How the homeless must look like unlicensed buoys, my broken analogy undermined by this fault.

Why is I marred by political bookzones? How about we to us? They, that he slay them, she, not who one thought. Igneous, a term I’d warrant, my cold lava tells me direction, my cut obsidian. Be I so bold to call my sharp tongue? My nonsense won by indiscretion, this cold lesson brought by some silly word like butterfingers, the one who drop it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
