The poem(s) are below...



Being brought up wrong,
in the gray, twisted light
of a damp town.

Growing up knotted,
turning my hands to the bad,
scrounging my body
from its hard baked earth.

Casting shade everywhere,
risking all and nothing -
I fell.

I had to discover,
that love casts no shadows,

it was then,
that my inward silhouette,
erased its own a dark recalling,

and a long-hobbled past
