this place up north [prompt hour 8]

(after Octavia Butler’s “Earthseed”)

there’s this place where I am special

I can feel others feels

famine, war, tyranny, this all complicates things

so I travel

on foot

picking up other travelers I hope are safe

victims

children

healers

and others afflicted with being special like me

as we all search 

search for water

search for safety

search for lost ones

search for ourselves
