Maybe it’s unrelatable
As it relates to all of them
Familiarity may breed
Yet absence grows fonder
Shall we keep our distances

Eleven

As a child

I ran around

the house, not stopping even to watch

my mother’s vases shatter or roll.

Now I pace as thoughts

race, not stopping even to watch

my mind shatter or roll.

viii.

We seek

attention,

acknowledgement,

recognition

 

Presence,

undeniable

Attention,

indivisible

 

We seek

privacy,

absence,isolation

 

We need

balance,

attention that

matters

relevant recognition

And the time to

reflect.

iii. Nurtural

Nature and

nurture

The differnences

between people

The similarities

between siblings

 

As it may be

in a parent’s

nature not

to nurture

As nurturing’s

as nature is

to a child

 

How naturally it

comes for us, to us

to dream

Evermore natural

not to nurture

those dreams

 

The nature of

waking up in

dreams

So often, that

we fall asleep

to realities
