"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you" ~ Dr. Seuss


Hear the crackle
Of raging fire
Taste the dust
Of grown desire
Smell the fear
Of vicious people
Touch the walls
Of plastic steeples
See the cracks
Of mirrors melting

And hold
the world
in your
fist

I have a lot to say about my motivation for writing this piece. But the fact that the piece says so much with so little is no accident. It may be interpreted many ways, and that's okay. Because to me it certainly is.

What amazing imagery! I'm not quite sure of the meaning but regardless, just reading it mezmorizes me. Outstanding Job!!!!
