A poem

Artwork, “What You Need” — by the author (Available here- without the yellow privacy dot)

Asking,
What do I need?
What will bring me joy to make?
Answering,
I won’t know until I make it.
So here I am again
Getting lost and found in unfamiliar faces.
instinct at the helm
Thinking mind abandoned
High winds tossing me about
I don’t know where I’m going
Can’t remember where I’ve been
Not now. Now is for paint and charcoal and filthy hands
Now is for exploring
not explaining
I’m in my own land — unreachable
And I wouldn’t…
