what does it mean to mend?
we are told: to repair
reinforce, reconstruct, redefine, resurrect
seditious joy lies in restoring the severed bond.
fierce compassion is required to feed liberation, to
honor visions of wholeness.
I offer my hands to hold.
each being is constructed from an infinite number of intersections:
time and place woven together
boundaries between self and other, interior and exterior, now and then, all
blur in the mirror behind my eyes.
friction rubs raw, wearing away until I stare
as at a wraith,
you are not disposable.
eventually, everything connects.
