crawls back
into a bud

from a fog
holding a lifeline,


clad in agony 
and moss

like a maid
losing her breast.

It reveals 
its purpose

and drives.
The clouds

Are budding.
It stands

despite all loss
vanishing like smoke.

    For some reason I am thinking that this has to do with cancer and the fear of losing a breast. I may be totally wrong, but nevertheless it homes to me as my Mother suffered from breast cancer and the panic it caused was very real. ~Kilmer

    This could be great depicted on a canvas Laura - this work of yours is akin to free-association which is a very rewarding method of expression - when I first began making literature I would compose mostly from my subconscious, developing a stronger sense of soul, making love to the concepts, forms of our language itself - it was so much fun and so cryptic - I continue to do so - I respect and enjoy your roving of styles - J.A.B. %
