pressed up against the sides of this space, I bump into the places where we meet and I wonder if there is enough room to branch out…to become the giants we need to be in the parts of our lives requiring us to be larger than our lives allow us right now?


tightly locked. back to back rather than face to face…where I would rather be with you…contained inside you instead of this cramped area of my head suffocating all of us under the smallness of my doubt about what is possible for either of us.


freedom made possible only through resignation or surrender.  either or both a possible option to break us out of this confinement.
