The Summer I Grew

I grew in compassion

That summer

As I watched

My best friend struggle

With health issues

And an amputation

Not a year old.

She had just escaped

A violent relationship

Months before,




A place for duuudes of all sexes, ages, religions, and coffee-preferences to hang out and shoot the sh!t about their latest creations, to brag, lament, query, or quote, it’s all good…
