p.s.

find my art.
pay the bills.
make early starts.
feel big feels.

take my time.
ink my arm.
write next line.
smile, be warm.

listen to health.
reveal my thoughts.
connect with self.
question lots.

listen then talk.
find my voice.
less chat, more walk.
cheer others’ choice.

fills that chair.

burned down,
past skin.

into the micro,

with host,
and making

for a growing

I want to
make your body
whole again.

ship
shape.

life
proof.

more
than
less.

I glare
at your
close companions.

breath through me
machine says.

eat from tube.

move with chair.

clean with sponge.

laze with t.v.

you, holding hands
with remote.

me, with hands
in pockets.

I will
have a hard
time
befriending them.
