Ce n'etait qu'un renard semblable 'a cent mille autres. Maus j'en ai fait mon ami, et il est maintenant unique au monde.- Antoine Saint-Exupery


The axe forgets, the tree remembers -you'll feel the same with new septembers

the smoke cleared, it eased these trembles -you left me here, in steaming embers

I jumped, I fell -into a well -I broke down with change in a wishing well

coins clinked and chimed as my pain rhymed -wishes, lost dreams, surrounding me

the waters rose and carried me -somewhere new and somewhere clean -cleansed my wounds with morning dew, now rid of you

upstream, with a pleasant gleam -somewhere safe

repaired by grace -my secret place
