smallness or starness
coming out of a part of my own life
like taking off a tight shirt:
too happy breathing to lament it.
a different kind of life splashed into my canoe this year.
dark nights, mostly. solitude, silence. roaming.
reading poetry, dostoevsky.
ecstatic insomnia, intoxication.
trances or fixes.
smallness or starness,
cold, warm, crying.
