knowing someone younger than you
picking flowers from fields at home
finding trash at school for that
not enough for those children
but O is me and she is strong and she is full
because my leg hairs have nothing
on talent or warmth or bravery
it will grow
it will grow longer than the beards of
prophets' whose genders we become familar with
we're the movies
the bravest who do the right things to save the country
or die trying
we're the front line
the wall to whom all bads take a knee or lose the idea of caps
plus so dashing the enemy forgets to be
can I be a super star
Do you want to?
can't do everything
but I can (and you)

even if it cut
burned friends out forever
it should be done

Lost the hope of
long term security
My mom thinks its hopeful.
But, I know it's not
Sculpture secures itself by its structure.
I secure myself in honor of the security it takes to build a structure.
Teaching is more than structure.
So, let's make sure that the

made a group for the 4th of July
called Yeti Art Stars
for the little ones
so I can hang
and them without wondering
if I should keep crying
because I'm not
just realize this pause is for
and needed because
self... worth... needs time to heal
refrigerator contents being:
leftover stew vegetables and fried chicken
over it please
I promise to care for myself if there is somebody in the next ten years who might also care for me... which is likely
tell ten years to make it two and I'll meet you
exactly where ever that is
My two year goal is to secure a decommissioned submarine for a sculpture... if you have one... PLEASE let me know.
